Music is a meaningful form of expression for a wide range of individuals at various stages of development.  Musical interventions utilized as therapeutic techniques can provide the framework for achieving specific goals. 

Can you imagine a world without music?  Music surrounds us.  We have a physiologically based appreciation of music that is an influential energy, shaping every culture as well as the values of our children. 

Creative Exchange Music Therapy Clinic was developed as an innovative and model communication program.  The highly individualized therapeutic approach relies on the use of current best practice, research based interventions including;  Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA), Picture Exchange Communication Systems (PECS), DIR/Floor Time (Developmental, Individual-Difference, Relationship-Based), Social Stories, Sensory Integration, Relationship Developmental Intervention (RDI), Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS), Non-Violent Crisis Intervention and Prevention, Behavior Modification, and various listening therapy programs. 

Our Mission

It is our goal to provide a safe and nurturing environment, individualized to meet the needs of each client.  Music therapy sessions facilitate self-expression and increase confidence in social interactions.  Music therapy assists in improving difficulties in language development, perceptive and cognitive processing, gross and fine motor skills and maladaptive behavioral patterns.

All sessions are client centered, individualized by improvisational music accompaniment.  Using a team approach, therapists conduct sessions that have uninterrupted musical structure and minimal intrusive verbal and physical prompting.
