Music Therapy with children with autism and people with severe disabilities

"Music heals. Just look at this video about the Nordoff-Robbins Center for Music Therapy, or ask some of the legends who support our work -- Sir Paul McCarthy, Bruce Springsteen, John Mellencamp, Rolling Stones, The Who, U2, and Ozzy Osbourne, to name a few.

At the Center, children with autism and people with severe disabilities discover new ways to communicate -- through music.

The Nordoff-Robbins approach is labor-intensive. There is no substitute for the focused and sustained attention of experienced therapists when it comes to connecting with hard-to-reach individuals.

Most sessions are conducted with two therapists, a third person films the session, and the two therapists spend additional time reviewing the videotape of each session. Each session builds upon the last, and in time, previously unspoken emotions, hidden connections and new relationships are unveiled.

As you will see on these videos, music therapy provides joy and gives rise to new ways to communicate with satisfaction and meaning." (NordoffRobbins)
