Vision: Unleashing the unique potential of individuals with disabilities Mission: NMTSA partners with those impacted by disability to change lives through using the brain’s response to music, and optimizing body and brain connections. NMTSA assumes the competence of all. Core Values: NMTSA believes in... -the capability of all people to reach their goals and attain their full potential. - the competence of all people. - the valuable contribution every person has to offer through their unique person and abilities. - the connection of science and relationship, and the impact both have on every person.
NMTSA provides Neurologic Music Therapy services as well as continuing education and training opportunities in the areas of Assuming Competence, Positive Behavioral supports, and Competency based communication strategies. We also have the Assuming Competence Today (ACT) School that provides general education curriculum paired with sensory, communication, and behavioral supports. Neurologic Music Therapy (NMT) is an advanced form of music therapy that uses research based techniques to treat the brain using music and rhythm. NMT uses these techniques to achieve non-musical goals such as speech, physical movement, cognition and other conditions of the nervous system. Our therapists use NMT interventions to treat a variety of neurologic difficulties including, but not limited to, Parkinson's, stroke, Traumatic Brain Injury, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, and Autism. We are also dedicated to collaboration and community outreach and training across a variety of subjects pertaining to individuals with disabilities. We count on our volunteers to partner with us in serving the greater Phoenix and Arizona community.
