“An individual will always integrate new information and skills when there is inner motivation and curiosity. Music can be the built in reward.”

Meet In The Music©is a curriculum with a broad range of options that will allow you to instantly professionalize your music therapy practice. MITM is easy to implement and includes all of the major components required for a modern practice. It has built-in program templates (music therapy interventions: both improvisation based and structured) for programming individual learners. Both Qualitative and Quantitative data can be collected for analysis. Treatment plans can be created from program templates, tailored to each client’s ability level and designed to utilize personal strengths, motivations, and interests.
Included in the MITM curriculum is the relaxation program "Rooted in Music".
For the child with Autism and their family, there is often daily stress of navigating through the challenges of interaction and overwhelming sensory input. Providing opportunities to simply “be” in the moment and live in the rhythm for a while can help a child feel calmer, more relaxed, reduce anxiety and bring attention and focus to body and mind. This is an excellent resource for therapists, interventionists, parents, caregivers and any other members of a child’s treatment team. Enjoy this resource along with a child or for yourself!
