Antoinette Morrison, MT-BC
For individuals with autism, sensory processing disorders, language and communication delay, attention and focus issues and other developmental disabilities, behavioral or emotional challenges, Music Therapy provides a form of expression and an avenue to develop areas that traditional therapies or learning may not provide. Music therapy is an affective therapy used for many children, adolescents, and adults to strengthen attention, communication skills, motor skills, psychological and emotional processing, grounding, and more. Antoinette Morrison, a certified Music Therapist in Dallas, Pennsylvania, and owner of Back Mountain Music Therapy, uses music therapy to develop and strengthen these areas of need in children and adults.
Parents and health professionals can enroll their children in sessions or recommend Music Therapy through Back Mountain Music Therapy. Each therapy program is tailored for each clients area of need which are developed by the strengths each client already posses. Music Therapy may be focused on organizing and recognizing sensory inputs, regulating and expressing physical or emotional responses, developing listening and attending skills, working cooperatively, reinforcing active learning, and more. By relating with clients with an alternative avenue for expression, emotional response, and learning, Music Therapy creates an outlet for positive expression in which the student can make connections that traditional therapy or other learning types have made difficult.
