Music Therapy

Music Therapy is offered as a private therapy and as part of tuition at Bridgeway Academy in both individual and group settings. Our Board Certified Music Therapists (MT-BC) have completed a minimum of a bachelor degree in music therapy and work with children of all ages and ability levels on social and pragmatic communication skills, articulation, receptive and expressive language development, fine and gross motor skills, and cognitive skills.

Music Therapists use music and music related strategies to facilitate non-musical IEP goals through instrument play, live singing, songwriting, dancing and movement. Music Therapists also use a variety of communication tools, including Sign Language, PECS, and LAMP for Augmentative Communication Devices and pictures. Multimodal social groups are also available with Music Therapy and Speech Therapy or Music Therapy and Licensed Psychologists co-treatment.  Theater groups for both Primary and Secondary students (up to young adults) are also offered in collaboration with music and speech therapy and may incorporate components of the Shakespeare and Autism Project.
