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.

Your music therapist will:
- Identify what is going on for your child and why some difficulties or behaviours might be happening

Who Will Be My Child’s Music Therapist?
Your child and your family are important to us, and we want to help your child reach their potential. Each time you visit our clinic, you will see the same therapist. This allows your child and your family to get to know the therapist who will guide your child’s health journey. This also means the therapist will become familiar with how your child learns as their skills change and develop.
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.
