Music Therapy is a treatment modality that will not only allow your child to enjoy their session but achieve their goals across multiple areas of need.

Hello, my name is Lauren, and I am so excited to be partnering with Jones Therapy Services to be providing music therapy at some of the Nashville area clinics. I have experience in working with children with special needs including but not limited to ASD, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Apraxia, Traumatic Brain Injury, Anxiety, Depression, Mitochondrial Disease, Intellectual Disability, and Developmental Disability. I believe in and have witnessed the power of music therapy in an interdisciplinary clinical environment.

Why Music Therapy?

  • Music is rewarding:

    • Children often don’t realize that they are still “working” and getting closer to their therapeutic goals.

  • Music is personalized:

    • Music is adapted at the moment to whatever the child’s specific needs are and to help them be as successful as possible at the moment.

  • Music activates the brain:

    • Music elicits activity all over the brain and can help trigger speech and other skills by helping different areas needed to perform the task work together.

  • Music works to improve a variety of goals:

    • Music therapy can work on numerous goals simultaneously to achieve results. Goal areas can include social, emotional, physical, cognitive, behavioral, and sensory domains. Music therapy can help reinforce and achieve goals worked on in conjunction with other therapies as well.

What services are offered?

  • Individual Music Therapy Sessions

    • A Board Certified Music Therapist will complete a standardized formal assessment in all domains of functioning. From there, an individualized treatment plan will be created with input from parents and assessment data. Goals created will not be related to musical skill or learning to play an instrument.

  • Adaptive Music Lessons

    • Music lessons with extra support for children with special needs. The goal will be musical, but the therapist will incorporate music therapy techniques and adaptations to help the child be successful in playing an instrument.
