🙋🏽‍♀️ Did you know?

If you or your child is a client through the San Diego Regional Center (SDRC), you may be eligible to receive music therapy services through MusicWorx Inc. - an approved service provider.

Music therapy is classified as a non-medical therapy with the SDRC and families may receive funding for our program via social recreation or self determination. Social recreation through the regional center provides opportunities for families to receive non-medical services, such as music therapy. Through self determination, clients have a budget and negotiate services in the community. These services do not necessarily have to be vendors with SDRC.

Learn about how music therapy could help you or your child, how you can get started, and what you can expect here:
