The IMTAP software allows the user to input client data for use in assessment and as a client database, thereby keeping all important information in a central file.
The IMTAP software is comprised of a step-by-step process which assists in planning and recording of all music therapy interventions. The first step is to complete the IMTAP intake which assesses the need for intervention in nine domains based on an intake interview with the referring individual.
After completion of the intake interview, the software automatically generates suggested domains for assessment. These suggestions assist the therapist in planning the assessment session.
During scoring of the assessment session, each IMTAP domain is divided into various sub-domains which further pinpoint the strengths and needs of each client. Items within each sub-domain are graded by level of difficulty as well as percentage of achievement by the client.
After completion of the assessment scoring, numerical results are given which can be used to recognize areas of need as well as to compare progress over time.
Assessment graph - domains
In addition to numerical data, all results are printable as a graph, which provides a visual representation of the client’s level of functioning across domains.
Assessment graph - subdomain
Further detail is provided by the sub-domain graphs which break down an overlying domain, such as Sensory Processing, into a clear picture of areas of need.
