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 his 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 your child feel calmer, more relaxed. It can reduce anxiety and bring attention and focus to his body and mind. Add this relaxation to your child’s “bag of self-regulation tricks”! This relaxation is also for you to enjoy along with your child or independently. This is also an excellent resource for therapists, interventionists and any members of the child’s treatment team.
Why should you use it?
Meet in the Music has been developed and refined for over 18 years in the field of autism and special education with hundreds of children, and is a proven, successful curriculum in music therapy practice today that can immediately help you measure and validate your treatment plan.
