Therapeutic goals and interventions address the rehabilitation, development, and maintenance of functional behaviours. The techniques used are categorised into three domains: sensorimotor training, speech and language training, and cognitive training, addressing specific goal areas and impairments in each domain. Each technique is evidence based and standardised and provides a specific intervention that is individualised for each person according to their ability and needs.
Specialist training is completed by a therapist to practice Neurologic Music Therapy. It differs from traditional music therapy as it views music not as a social-science model for well-being, but, as a neuroscience model in which music and rhythm is a hard-wired brain language to promote brain connections (neuropathways).
Neurologic Music Therapy is endorsed by the World Federation of Neurological Rehabilitation, the European Federation of Neurorehabilitation Societies and the International Society for Clinical Neuro-musicology.
