Abstract and Keywords

This chapter critiques existing music therapy assessment tools for their inadequate attention to specifically musical processes, for considering only nonmusical areas of functioning, and for an overly narrow examination of functional areas in isolation. A music-centered perspective is offered, the foundations of which remedy the deficiencies of the predominance of existing assessment tools. One assessment tool—the Individual Music-Centered Assessment Profile for Neurodevelopmental Disorders (IMCAP-ND)—is described in detail to illustrate a music therapy assessment that looks at functional areas within music and within the context of a coactive music therapy relationship.

Keywords: music therapy, music therapy assessment, music therapy evaluation, music-centered music therapy, IMCAP-ND
