Music therapy is a form of expressive therapy conducted by an accredited professional. The goal of music therapy is to utilize the body’s various systems in music-focused settings to improve cognitive functioning, motor skills, social skills and emotional development.
Music therapy is highly practical for children on the Autism Spectrum because of its nonverbal and non-frightening nature. Pairing music with specific actions such as movement and playing instruments can help therapists target specific behaviors or improvement areas in children with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder).
