Music Therapy

Music can be an excellent therapeutic tool for those with Developmental Disabilities and Autism Spectrum Disorder since these individuals often show a heightened interest and response to music.

Music Therapy is an established healthcare profession that uses music to address physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of individuals of all ages. Music therapy improves the quality of life for children and adults with disabilities in key areas of:

  • Communication
    Motor Skills
    Emotional Skills
    Social and Sensory Skills


"I think Amanda Cook is just spectacular. She is consistent, kind, encouraging, thoughtful, willing to try new things, and doesn't give up easily even when my daughter would like her to. We are so fortunate to get to work with her."

"Music Therapy continues to be an essential tool in my daughter’s development. It has not only helped her to communicate her wants and needs, but also has helped her to be more social at home, school and play."
-Mary D.
