Our clinics offer a welcoming and supportive environment in which children can express their feelings and make progress. Our Music Therapists are passionate about helping children and their families achieve their musical goals.

Our Music Therapists work with families to empower them with learning skills that foster learning. They will encourage their child to participate in activities both at home and in the community. 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 therapy help my child?

During childhood, children take in physical, emotional, social and cognitive information and language from their experiences and their environment. Music therapy in Claremont Meadows delivers opportunities to encourage general development through music making methods and play with activities such as instrumental play, singing, listening to music, song writing, sensory play, and movement.

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

  • Body awareness and sensory integration

What is a Music Therapist?

Music therapists are trained with advanced musicianship and therapeutic training to assess and provide music therapy to children experiencing difficulties in communication, emotional regulation, social interaction, and sensory and motor integration. Music therapists will assess the goals of your child and your concerns in order to develop a personalized therapy plan with you and other therapists.

What can you expect from your first music therapy consultation?

Your Music Therapist will:

  • Determine what is happening for your child and the reasons for their behaviours or problems
  • 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 is aware that every child’s needs are unique. We are here to guide you and your family and provide regular support for your child’s needs.
