School-based music therapy

Music therapy services are recognized as a related service under IDEA. Music therapy services can be provided as a related service on a child's IEP or as educational enrichment with costs covered by the school.

There are 2 avenues to pursue to request services in the school system:  as a related service or as educational enrichment.  The needs of each teen has a significant impact on the placement of music therapy on the IEP for direct/consult services or requested as educational enrichment services for the teacher and staff for one student or a group of students.

Consultation 

Music is a highly motivating medium to assist a wide variety of goals areas for children.  In many instances it may not be 1) necessary or 2) financially viable to hire a music therapist for direct therapy services.  

In this situation we offer clinical consultation to families, therapists, teachers, and facility coordinators and staff to use music intentionally with the teen/youth they work with.  These services can be highly effective as the music therapist specifically designs interventions and material that can be used with the teen or group of youth on a daily basis.  

We see great benefit from MT consultation for teachers who have a number of teens in the classroom who need assistance with transitions, sensory integration, and behavioral management but do not necessarily have an IEP or specialized program in place to request direct services.

Creative Arts in music

These services utilize both music and art collaboratively to target expression and engagement for individuals and groups.  

These services differ from music therapy services in that they may not include a treatment plan but rather focus more on the process and product during each session or set of sessions. 

Services are provided for both individuals and groups.
