What happens next?
Once a child or adult is referred to the Centre, a consultation takes place to assess the person's needs and the potential for music therapy to help them develop new skills and behaviours, and create new possibilities for their participation in the world.
If it is decided that music therapy is the right clinical intervention, the person is placed on the waiting list until an appropriate session time becomes available.
Sessions are usually weekly, during term time (40 weeks a year), and are 30 to 40 minutes in length.
There is normally a six-session assessment period once music therapy begins. A Goals and Focus Areas plan is developed, in consultation with the client, parent and caregivers, and confirmed at the end of the assessment period.
Most sessions are one-on-one, or in small groups, depending on the person's needs.
