SECTION: Music for Mental and Physical Health COUNTRY: Japan PROJECT: MUSIC THERAPY TO PROMOTE EMOTIONAL AND PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT FOR CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES: MOYO DESCRIPTION: MOYO is a music therapy center for children with disabilities in Matsudo-City, in the Chiba Prefecture. All children under the age of eighteen who are currently living in Japan qualify for services. The primary purpose of this initiative is to serve the varied needs of both clients and their parents. The clients‟ areas of disability range from autism and Aspergers Syndrome, to PDD, ADHD, developmental delays, Down Syndrome, CP, and various other physical disabilities. Currently 32 children are served. The treatment is a creative music therapy approach using improvised music to help promote emotional and physical development in the clients. In addition to clinical services, the center supervises music therapy trainees, provides lecturers to university students and produces community performances. MOYA provides child disability support services that operate under the umbrella of a social welfare corporation, Matsudo Ikuseikai, Matsubokkuri. In April 2010, MOYO launched a day-care service enterprise for children under the provisions of the Services and Support for Persons with Disabilities Act of 2005 that provides compensation for music therapy services. This enabled clients to receive music therapy at one-tenth of the cost. CURRENT STATUS: The government and the prefectural and city council cover ninety percent of the session fees. The clients cover the remaining one-tenth of the cost. New populations, such as victims of child abuse, will be eligible for music therapy services beginning in April, 2012 under enacted legislative reforms to the Child Welfare Act. It is expected that the demand for music therapy at MOYO will correspondingly increase. RESEARCH AND EVALUATION: Each session is filmed as visual documentation. By so doing, sessions are reviewed for analysis, study and evaluation.
