1. Submit a Referal
If you believe Milestone Music Therapy is the right choice for you, take the initial step by completing the referral form. It is not a commitment to therapy, but rather informs us you are looking for more specific information.. Once your information is received, you will be contacted to answer any questions you may still have.
2. Intake Form
After you have made the decision to move forward with an assessment session, a parent or gurdian should complete the intake form to better inform us of medical therapy history. There is a lot of information that is helpful in planning for the assessment session. Parents or guardians will receive a follow-up call after they have complete the form.
3. Schedule An Assessment Session
4. Assessment Session
Your child or loved one will be engaged in a 30-45 minutes music therapy session to assess specific areas of functioning and how they respond to music. After the session, an assessment summary will be written which states assessed areas of strengths and weakness. It will also outline potential music therapy goals and interventions to address the goals. Parents or guardians will receive this document within one week of the actual session.
5. Sign Initial Contract and Implement Music Therapy
If music therapy is the right fit for your child or loved one, parents or guardians will sign their inital contract spelling out the frequency and duration of sessions, as well as goals to be addressed. This initial contract is for 3-months or 12-sessions, whichever comes first. The reason for this initial time frame is to give music therapy time to promote positive growth in the life of your loved one. Once the contract period is a fulfilled, a progress report will be completed, and parents can decide if they want to progress with music therapy. There will no longer be a contract period to fulfill.
6. Ongoing Evaluation of Effectiveness
Parents and guardians will be engaged in ongoing conversations about the effectiveness of the music therapy. If there becomes a time when a client has reached all their goals or they are no longer appropriate, a progress report will be written and new goals will be established.
