Welcome!  I’m Mary, a board-certified music therapist.  I started Music Therapy Kids as a “go to” site to help others learn about music therapy and how it can impact children with autism spectrum disorders and intellectual disabilities.

I also strive to empower parents, teachers, and therapists to use music strategies at home or in sessions. Music makes a powerful difference in the lives of children who are special learners.

Here you’ll find helpful articles about music therapy.  You’ll find tips for incorporating music at home or into therapy sessions.  You’ll also find original songs and music strategies!

If you haven’t already – get started here and if you have any questions please contact me mary@musictherapykids.com
