Music Therapy is a well-established allied health professional similar to occupational therapy and physical therapy. It consists of using music therapeutically to address physical, psychological, cognitive and/or social functioning. Because music therapy is a powerful and non-threatening medium, unique outcomes are possible. Music therapy has been proven an effective intervention of older adults with developmental disabilities, mental illness, communication disorders, physical disabilities, chronic, illness, and Alzheimer's disease and related dementias. Some private insurance companies will reimburse the cost of music therapy treatment.
Music Therapy uses music experiences, both instrumental and vocal, passive and active, designed by the therapist to facilitate changes which are non-musical in nature. Music Therapy intervention is based on individual assessment, treatment planning, and ongoing program evaluation. The music therapist functions as part of the interdisciplinary team working to enable each individual to reach his or her higest potential.
