Chatterbox strives to provide the best possible care for your loved ones. Our music therapists show kindness and compassion. They are passionate about helping children reach their full potential.

Clinics offer a friendly and warm environment in which your child can be heard and supported. All of our Music Therapists share a passion in working with children and families to achieve their learning goals through music.

Our Music Therapists will empower children and their families with skills that encourage learning. They provide care for children who have Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), difficulties in social and play skills, self-regulation, emotional regulation, behaviour, fine and gross motor skills, wellbeing, self-confidence, and self-expression.

How can a music therapist help your child?

Children are able to absorb language, as well as emotional, cognitive, and social information, from their environments and their experiences in childhood. Music therapy in Caddens provides opportunities for general development. It uses music making methods and plays with activities like instrumental play, singing and song writing.

Some goal areas music therapy can target in your child’s lifelong learning include:

  • Social skills
  • Dealing with emotions
  • Handling situations
  • Communication
  • Attention and focus
  • Following instructions
  • School readiness
  • Making friends
  • Fine and gross motor skills
  • Self-expression
  • Sequencing and memory
  • Improved wellbeing
  • Motor planning
  • Speech and language
  • Body awareness and sensory integration

What Does A Music Therapist Do?

Music therapists have the ability to provide music therapy to children with difficulty in communication, emotional regulation, sensory integration and social interaction. A music therapist will consider and assess your child’s goals and your concerns to create an individualised therapy plan in collaboration with your family and other therapists.

What can you expect from your first music therapy consultation?

Your music therapist will:

  • Identify the root cause of your child’s behaviour problems and difficulties.
  • Provide you with a plan to get your child moving in the right direction immediately
  • Create an individualised solution to help you get the results that your family needs

Chatterbox recognises that each child is different. Chatterbox is here for you and your entire family. We will provide ongoing support for your child’s needs.

Who Will Be My Child’s Music Therapist?

We value your child and your family and want to help them reach their full potential. You will see the same therapist every time you visit us at the clinic. This means that your child and family become familiar with the therapist who will lead your child’s health journey. This allows the therapist to get to know your child’s learning styles and how they change over time.

All our therapists have a Master of Music Therapy degree and are members of the professional body, the Australian Music Therapy Association. All of our therapists are familiar with working with children of all ages.

Our therapists are required to continually update their skills. They must attend Professional Development Workshops or Professional Conferences to ensure they provide the Chatterbox Community with the most current, research-based therapy.
