What is Music Therapy?
Music Therapy is an interpersonal process in which the therapist leverages music to improve an individual’s quality of life. The value of music therapy to those with autism and special needs is extraordinary and unique relative to other therapies commonly received. Music is special in a way that humans universally can appreciate, especially those with autism and other special needs. Music is a medium that transforms those subjected to it. Increasingly recognized music therapy research and science shows that music positively affects special needs individuals’ mood, processing, sensations, and ability.
As certain music is played/chosen, it can powerfully evoke certain responses. Often progress transcends what might be otherwise possible in other therapies or settings. Please don’t misunderstand, at Jammin’ Jenn we believe that other therapies like ABA, occupational, and speech are crucial. It’s just that we understand the power of music. We see it at work every day.
