Students who qualify for special education services may receive a Student Review of their educational program. This entails an observation/discussion of learning styles and classroom instruction with education personnel working with the student. The successful use of music as a motivating component during classroom instruction is also explored. A Student Review will indicate whether or not an evaluation is necessary, thereby determining if music therapy can support I.E.P. goals.
A music therapy evaluation compares the student's performance of I.E.P. skills with and without music therapy intervention. Services will be recommended if the student responds to music strategies to such a degree that the addition of music therapy services to the educational program can provide assistance with the student achievement of specific I.E.P. goals.
