Music Speaks, a private music therapy practice in the Capital Region, is excited to be offering music therapy services to families with children with special needs. Music Speaks serves many school districts and families privately across the Capital Region. Through activities like instrument play and movement, music therapy can be used to improve behavioral health, academic skills, cognition, motor functioning, social skills, and communication. Our Music Therapists are credentialed professionals using clinical music interventions to accomplish non-musical individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship. Music Speaks thrives on creating a positive therapeutic relationship with its clients while meeting them “in the moment" to allow their wants and needs to be met and to ensure a non-invasive, creative environment.
"We Are the Music Makers" was designed to offer group music experiences for special learners, their families and caregivers, and their peers. This is a group run by a Music Therapist, filled with instrument playing, movement, singing and songwriting.
