MUSIC THERAPY FOR AUTISM SPECTRUM AND DEVELOPMENTAL DIFFERENCES
Enhancing lives with new connections
Music therapy is very effective and enjoyable for most individuals on the spectrum. Techniques like Auditory Perception Training, Sensory Integration, songwriting, social skills songs, and improvisation can enhance skills and bridge connections. The picture to the left shows lyrics composed by a client about life with autism.
Many clients with developmental differences are more engaged in music therapy than in other forms of therapy, leading to success with goals ranging from motor and visual tracking skills to academic and communication skills.
