General information

Individual Treatment Services: Music Therapy Occupational Therapy Physical Therapy Adaptive Music Lessons/Music Activity Consultation Services Assessments Staff in-services and Trainings Health For A Song: An innovative treatment support program for individuals, caregivers, and their families who live with a diagnosis, condition, or recurring problem yet have difficulty maintaining practice and self-care on their own. The program is designed to assist participants with the maintenance of gains achieved in treatment, or as a way to prevent the need for treatment.

Programming from all support areas is available to members, as needed. Motor/Movement Social/Emotional Spiritual/Immune Speech/Cognition Combination Workshops/Classes available

I suffered a severe stroke more than 3 years ago. Doctors gave up on me pretty soon after because the stroke involved medical conditions that were exaggerated by drug use. Still, I was left with neurological complications and Music saved my life, and has been my therapy for life. Here is a clip of music at work in my life taken two weeks after the stroke in January 2015.
For some reason I get a "Physical Therapy Products" catalog in the mail. Today I peeked before recycling, and lo and behold, "Gait Trainer 3" caught my eye. Good work, people!
Such a pleasure to see Team I AM I CAN getting ready for the Cap 10K today!
Hi there! Tressie from Harmony here......Do you all use the ILS (Integrated Listening Systems)? Or something similar? Hope all is well and I miss see y'all!
John Zozzaro and Laura Calo rocked this interview! Thanks for talking about Center for Music Therapy and all of our Austin Media Tech Ventures pulling hard forward together to make the world a more CREATIVE and great way and place to be!
