Music Therapy and the Treatment of Children Diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder
Metadata[+] Show full item record
The prevalence of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) has increased in recent years, calling for professionals to develop more effective therapies for treatment. Music therapists have been working with children with autism since the 1940s (Reschke-Hernández, 2011) and design music interventions to meet specific non-musical needs for their clients (American Music Therapy Association, 2015b). The purpose of this paper is to describe the characteristics of ASD, define music therapy, and outline how music therapy can address the needs of children with ASD.
