• To address these issues a White Paper was recently prepared for the Australian Music Therapy Association (AMTA) discussing the inclusion of music therapy in NDIS plans (McFerran, Tamplin, Thompson, Lee, Murphy & Teggelove, 2016). (austmta.org.au)
  • AMTA also produced short animations and information on music therapy and its applications ( www.rmtschangelives.com.au ) and the symposium "Music, Health and Wellbeing, and the NDIS" was hosted by the University of Melbourne in September 2016 to explore how music services, including music therapy, would continue under the NDIS. (austmta.org.au)
  • Despite this, it appears that the ability of adults with severe and profound intellectual disabilities to continue to access music therapy through NDIS plans remains unclear and ad hoc (McFerran, 2016). (austmta.org.au)
  • Music therapists use their techniques to help their patients in many areas, ranging from stress relief before and after surgeries to neuropathologies such as Alzheimer's disease . (cmleukemia.com)
  • This qualitative research study explored areas of similarity and contrast between a music therapy student's interpretations of selected audiovisual excerpts from music therapy sessions with a child with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and his parent's interpretations of the same. (up.ac.za)
  • Once the music therapy process was complete, four primary excerpts and five secondary excerpts were selected. (up.ac.za)
  • Interpretations of the four primary excerpts were written by the music therapy student. (up.ac.za)
  • Part two involved the viewing of the five secondary excerpts as part of a discussion between the music therapy student and parent, leading to the collaborative creation of a music activity for the home environment. (up.ac.za)
  • Some common music therapy practices include developmental work (communication, motor skills, etc.) with individuals with special needs, songwriting and listening in reminiscence, orientation work with the elderly, processing and relaxation work, and rhythmic entrainment for physical rehabilitation in stroke victims.

  • These themes then implicitly informed the collaborative creation of a music activity for the home context. (up.ac.za)
  • A further feature of the study was investigating how these interpretations could inform the collaborative creation of a music activity for use in the home environment. (up.ac.za)
  • One study found that children who listened to music while having an IV inserted into their arms showed less distress and felt less pain than the children who did not listen to music while having an IV inserted. (cmleukemia.com)
