SCHOOL BASED PROGRAMS

IEP-BASED MUSIC THERAPY SESSIONS

Students may have music therapy added to their IEP when it is deemed necessary for their education.  After an initial referral, our board certified music therapists use the Special Education Music Therapy Assessment Process (SEMTAP) in order to determine whether or not a student will qualify for music therapy services.  The assessment process must demonstrate that music therapy strategies are necessary to assist the student in participating in their education and reaching their IEP goals.

LEVELS OF MUSIC THERAPY SERVICES ON THE IEP

DIRECT SERVICES

Students receive direct music therapy services as outlined in his/her IEP. Direct services can be provided individually or in a group.

CONSULTATION SERVICES

Music therapist designs and shares music based strategies with the IEP team to implement into the student’s education plan.

NON IEP-BASED MUSIC THERAPY SESSIONS

Music therapy can be provided in a school setting as an enrichment service for special education programs. After an initial assessment, our music therapists design sessions to address both therapeutic and academic goals.  Our motivating programs use music based experiences to help students reach their full potential.
