Chiltern Music Therapy
Chiltern is a dynamic Social Enterprise, passionate about ensuring that our award winning, evidence-based Neuro Music Therapy service is accessible to all. Chiltern provides Neurologic Music Therapy (NMT) and MATADOC assessments (Music Therapy Assessment Tool in Awareness for Disorders of Consciousness) to children with a range of needs. We have the most experienced team of practicing Neurologic Music Therapists in the UK, using evidenced-based techniques that use music to support improvements in speech and language, cognition and memory, physical difficulties and emotional well-being. We work closely with individuals, siblings, families at home, case managers and solicitors, and also provide services in hospitals and neuro-rehabilitation settings.
Anyone can get in touch with us to request a Neurologic Music Therapy assessment of 4 sessions, where we can look at whether NMT will be useful as an ongoing therapy, or whether a standard music therapy service, or home programme, using music would be beneficial to your child. We don’t have a referral criteria and our service is open to everyone. Examples of referrals include those who:
- Have an acquired, hypoxic or traumatic brain injury
- Have cerebral palsy
- Have suffered injuries at birth
- Have life-limiting conditions
- Are diagnosed with Batten’s Disease, Rett Syndrome or any neuro-degenerative conditions
Just call, e-mail or skype us to ask for a referral form or have an informal chat with a member of the team.
