"It is wonderful that music can be the bridge to a child where words have failed"
- Paul McCartney

music therapy west
The Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy West provides funding to support The Music Therapy Wellness Clinic at CSUN. The Center treats children with autism and other severe physical, intellectual, and emotional disabilities using techniques based on the beliefs that music is a universal language, and every human being has the capacity to respond to music.
Extensively trained and certified therapists employ improvisational music to stimulate communication with the child. Once this relationship is developed, the therapist works with the child to foster or improve the ability to develop communication, confidence, concentration, motor skills, and the ability to relate to others.
