Music Therapy Services

Individual, Group, and Co-Treatment Music Therapy Services

Individual Music Therapy

IMG_092_landscape.jpgIndividual music therapy sessions are a minimum of 1x/week for 1 hour, which includes 45 minutes of direct therapy time and 15 minutes for processing with families, data, and cleaning of instruments and supplies to follow safety precautions. Increased session lengths and frequencies are available based on the family's needs.  A full assessment is conducted and functional goals are developed, tailored to the individual's needs.  Individual music therapy services for children and adults with developmental and neurological challenges are provided at NeuroRhythm's clinic in South Colorado Springs. 
 

Group Music Therapy

Group music therapy sessions are at least 1x/week for 1 hour, which includes 45 minutes of direct therapy time and 15 minutes for processing with families, data, and cleaning of instruments and supplies to follow safety precautions. Increased session lengths and frequencies are available based on the group's needs.  Small groups consist of 3-6 individuals at similar functioning levels and with similar interests. Each individual has one goal to accomplish within the group.  Group sessions provide more general, less intensive music therapy and cannot provide the individualized treatment plans that individual sessions can.  Therefore, group sessions are billed at a lower rate for private pay families.  Group music therapy services for children and adults with developmental and neurological challenges are provided at NeuroRhythm's clinic in South Colorado Springs.

Co-Treatment

IMG_057.jpgCo-treatment music therapy sessions are typically 1 hour every 3-6 months or as needed, which includes 45 minutes of direct therapy time and 15 minutes for processing with the co-treating therapist, families, data, and cleaning of instruments and supplies to follow safety precautions. Increased session lengths and frequencies are available based on the family's needs. Co-treatment is a session in which the music therapist collaborates with another health professional on the individual's interdisciplinary team such as a Speech Language Pathologist, Physical Therapist, Occupational Therapist, Behavior Analyst, Dance Movement Therapist, or other health professional.  Co-treatment music therapy sessions for children and adults with developmental and neurological challenges may be provided in the community such as the individual's home, a therapy clinic, or at NeuroRhythm's clinic in South Colorado Springs.
