Music therapy in Irvine

Music therapy in Irvine

Hi,
I am looking for music therapy services for my 4 year old son on Spectrum. He loves music and recites a couple of nursery rhymes by himself when watching on IPad. His language is emerging and would like to try Music therapy. Have heard about Kindermusik in Tustin and McKee Music therapy services in Irvine. McKee Music services fees is exorbitant. They charge $100/hr. Any one has any recommendations? I believe insurance does not cover Music therapy services.
Thanks.

Gabriel had a music therapy session and loved it. He lives singing songs My insurance covers aba, pt, ot and speech. Anyone know if I can get the insurance to pay for music therapy?

DDD covers it. It falls under Hab, but I think you have one type of Hab or the other - it might not be authorized for both.

My daughter is 3 years old and in an integrated pre-k program. She is getting, ST, OT, and PT. Her doctor suggested music therapy be put in her IEP but when I asked the CPSE chairperson to have a music therapy evaluation she said she never heard of such a thing.

We are looking for a dvd that can teach parents (non musicians) to deliver music therapy or use strategies.We have Hanen Magic with Music. I have to finish viewing, but seems a little young. He is almost 6 and enjoys country, rock, The sound of Music, and still likes some kids songs such as Wheels on the Bus.

Your pediatrician may have good recommendations for therapy places in your local area. I would also look online for ABA therapies in your area.

Has anyone tried music therapy in treatment plan to motivate speech?

Has anyone tried music therapy in treatment plan to motivate speech?

Was looking through QAs here and results are a few years old...anyone utilizing music therapy at all? If so, what’s been your experience?

My son loves music, esp when he sees guitar and banjo players on TV, tinkering around with the keyboard, etc. Artist and musician genes in the family, so very warm to the idea of music therapy as potential outlet to motivate speech!

Pray tell!

I am very interested in learning more about using music therapy to teach speech. Does anyone know about this?

I am very interested in learning more about using music therapy to teach speech. Does anyone know about this?

Does anyone know about Auditory Motor Mapping Training or Melodic Intonation Therapy? I have read just enough to get interested in it as a way that maybe I could teach my grandson to talk. He has been in speech therapy in his special ed class for over a year and while I've seen improvement (mostly with ABA) it is pretty slow. Temple Grandin's book,"The Autistic Brain: Thinking Across the Spectrum", says… read more
