Music bypasses language, offering a symbolic mean of expression for children who may not have the verbal abilities to do so. The repetitive structure of music provides a containment for children to feel the sense of safety needed for self-expression, yet is flexible for creativity and autonomy to grow. Within the musical setting, therapeutic relationship with the Music Therapist and others in the groups are formed in a symbolic non-invasive way, allowing children to be supported and feel connected in the sessions.
Music therapy for children would be conducted with integration of sensory motor activities, play therapy and psychotherapy to address individual and family goals. Some of the outcomes may include enhanced gross motor and fine motor abilities, increased social skills and attention span, improved speech and non-verbal communication skills and higher emotional stabilities and self-expression abilities.
