This is the introduction to a presentation I did with Stacey Hensel, MA, MT-BC, LCAT, NRMT at the Mid-Atlantic Region of the American Music Therapy Association’s annual conference in Pittsburgh a couple of weeks ago. It was entitled, “A Complicated Friendship:DIR and Music Therapy”, but truthfully, the relationship is not that complicated. I am always so glad to be amongst music therapists, as they are the natural allies of the relationship-based intervention that is DIR. They, and sometimes only they, can help kids with language disorders Continue reading

MAR AMTA Conference

27 Mar

Right now, I’m upstairs from the conference, and Stacey Hensel, MA, MT-BC, LCAT, NRMT, the brilliant music therapist, and I are really happy with all the positive feedback we got from the presentation we gave Friday morning. A lot of people asked for the slides from the presentation, and I said we would make them available through the blog. So, if you want the slides, or you want to contact me at all, for any reason, here’s how. Click on this link: NYAutismServices.com and that will take you to the page of my private practice. On that page is a button in the lower middle that says, “We Care Greatly, Contact Us Now”. Click that, and leave your information. In the comment section tell me you want the slides. Then click “Submit”. I will use the email address you leave to send you the slides. You can also use this way of contacting me to talk about all the great ideas we had in casual conversation over the days of the convention. Some of you talked about the great ideas you had for research, for instance.

While you’re here, check out the blog, and let me know what you think.

Check back to the blog over the next few days as I add Stacey’s contact information, and some great links in the blog role to Music Therapy sites and blogs, and DIR sites and Blogs. You will find them, as I post them, in the “Blog Roll” in the right hand column of this page. Let’s keep the momentum going! Thank you again for inviting me and being so kind and generous. I look forward to seeing you all soon!

This is part one of a therapy session I did last week with a kid I see in my private practice who has recently gotten in trouble around his wanting to have friends. He hugged a little girl in his class, innocently, and the little girl did not like it. He got in trouble, and the parents of the little girl were quite upset and wanted him to have a severe punishment. The school was great, and understanding. Before he got to me, after the trouble in school, he and his mom went out to dinner, and he hit her, hard, in the restaurant. She was hurt Continue reading
