Music and autism

music therapy

It has been said that music has helped individuals with autism. In a study, by the College of Alternative Medicine, Jeonju University, Korea, improvisational music therapy sessions and toy play sessions were examined to see if there was any evidence to support the value of music therapy in advancing social, emotional and motivational development in children with autism. “Improvisational music therapy produced markedly more and longer events of ‘joy’, ’emotional synchronicity’ and ‘initiation of engagement’ behaviors in the children than toy play sessions.”

Amazing!
