Music therapy is an integral part of programming for every child at Children's Care Hospital & School. Each child generally receives music therapy twice a week from a board-certified music therapist (MT-BC). Music therapy activities are designed in group and individual settings to address each child's communication, behavioral, cognitive, physical, social, and self expressive goals.
