Music Therapy with Different Populations/Diagnoses

The American Music Therapy Association (AMTA) has done a great job putting together some PDFs about how music therapy can benefit different populations and specific diagnoses.  They offer information about what music therapy is in general, what to expect from sessions, how clients can benefit from music therapy, and in some cases further research on the topic.  Here are links to AMTA’s fact sheets on some of the populations MTNWA works with:
