About Back Mountain Music Therapy - Dallas, PAVisit website
For individuals with autism, sensory processing disorders, language and communication delay, other developmental disabilities, behavioral or emotional challenges, Music Therapy provides a form of expression and an avenue to develop areas that traditional learning may not provide. Music therapy is an effective therapy used for many children, adolescents, and adults to strengthen communication skills, listening skills, motor skills, psychological and emotional processing, and more. Antoinette Morrison, a certified Music Therapist in Dallas, Pennsylvania, and owner of Back Mountain Music Therapy, uses music therapy to develop and strengthen these areas of need in children and young adults.
Parents and health professionals can enroll their children in sessions or recommend Music Therapy through Back Mountain Music Therapy. Each therapy program is tailored for each student’s area pf need which are developed by the strengths each client already posses. Music Therapy may be focused on organizing and recognizing sensory inputs, regulating and expressing physical or emotional responses, developing listening and attending skills, working cooperatively, reinforcing active learning, and more. By relating with clients with an alternative avenue for expression, emotional response, and learning, Music Therapy creates an outlet for positive expression in which the student can make connections that traditional therapy or other learning types have made difficult.

This week I was thrilled to hear from Sarah Paulson, who notified me that Back Mountain Music Therapy would be featured in PhDinSpecialEducation.com. I was excited about the exposure of my business, but also grateful to be classified along with other businesses associated with the well-being of those in need of special education.
It seems to me that quite often a child is given a label and the first lines of treatment include medication and/or a behavioral program to help those with special needs. People with special needs are just that: individuals with special needs, differing somewhat from what we typically see. Special needs individuals are individuals, not labeled specimens. It is wonderfully human to not only recognize the “out of the box”, the “special”, the “creative”, help, aid, activities, therapies, education, and relationships that these individuals need, crave, require and deserve. Often the “special” part is what we receive when our recognition and willingness to relate allows an openness to embrace individuals who do not always function within the typical norm.
I am honored to have my service listed with other services creatively designed to share, relate, and seek wholeness as a means of normalization. If you are one of those eager and willing or looking to make the life better of a special person with a special need in your life, but not sure how, take a look at this list of avenues to begin.
