The IMCAP-ND Music Therapy Assessment training provided by John Carpente was an experience that opened my eyes to a new way of seeing and interacting with my clients musically, as well as giving an invaluable framework from which to communicate music therapy’s benefits for individuals with Neurological Disorders to administration, families, and staff. I find that I am relating to and understanding the needs of my clients on a much deeper level and that will greatly influence every facet of the therapeutic process with them in the future. This is an extremely valuable tool, and John presents it in such a way that is thorough, challenging, and creative! I highly recommend this training to any music therapy professional!”

“The IMCAP-ND course was career changing!!!!!! After15 years of a successful music therapy career it opened my eyes to a very positive child-centered way to communicate and assess –following the lead of the child. Coming from a school that uses  DIR/Floortime in the early intervention program, the IMCAP-ND method is a logical and well thought out process that marries music therapy and floortime. The assessment is ready to use and with practice will become the staple assessment process that I use in schools. Fantastic course! In short, the IMCAP-ND course was mind blowing! 

-Amy Gardiner, MT-BC
