A Board Certified Music Therapist is trained to utilize music to help your child improve functioning in a variety of developmental areas. Rhythm, lyrics, melody, timing, and other aspects of music, stimulate different parts of the brain...those that are typically used for language, and those used for non-verbal processing and daily functioning.
Music Therapy helps children improve communication, social skills, sensory processing, fine/gross motor skills and more. Because music provides concrete and multi-sensory stimulation that helps brain development, music therapy is utilized in situations ranging from working with individuals with language disorders or social challenges (such as those often associated with Autism Spectrum Disorders), to helping stroke and closed head injury patients, recover neurological functioning.
