The Canadian Association of Music Therapy defines music therapy as “the skillful use of music and musical elements by an accredited music therapist to promote, maintain, and restore mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health. Music has nonverbal, creative, structural, and emotional qualities. These are used in the therapeutic relationship to facilitate contact, interaction, self-awareness, learning, self-expression, communication, and personal development.”
Goals and objectives are assessed for each individual according to their strengths and which areas need strengthening. Some examples of goals music can address are:
- Eye Contact
- Joint attention
- Sensory Integration
- Fine and gross motor control
- Verbal non-verbal and picture exchange communication
- Social awareness and skills
- Self regulation
- Relaxation and calm-down strategies
- Impulse control
The sessions run from September 6, 2023 – Wednesday, October 11, 2023
