I gave a presentation to a group of Occupational Therapists and Physical Therapists last night at Shriners' Hospital in Portland. I spoke about current research with children with developmental disabilities, and my own experiences with children with special needs. The audience was lovely and had many questions for me, the most interesting of which regarded whether my services compete with what they are doing . . . I said that music therapy is part of the interdisciplinary team and works hand in hand with other therapists and professionals, not in competition.
