Neurologic Music Therapy
Neurologic music therapy (NMT) uses specific techniques to improve functioning in the face of neurological damage. This can include individuals who have had a stroke or other traumatic brain injury, Parkinson disease, and Autism. Individuals experiencing disruptions in their ability to communicate (receptive and expressive), initiate and control motor movements, and memory loss can benefit from these thoroughly researched and proven methods.
Neurologic music therapy has recently been accepted by worldwide and can now be reimbursed by insurance agencies as well. The World Federation of Neurorehabilitation (WFNR), the European Federation of Neurorehabilitation Societies (EFNS), and the Society for Clinical Neuromusicology (CNM) have all officially endorsed NMT training for neurological rehabilitation.
