One of the latest pieces of advice for parents, teachers and carers of children with Autism is the power of music in assisting cognitive development and emotional wellbeing. The use of music therapy has already shown great results for improving temperament in children with Autism, supporting them to develop stronger learning skills and knowledge acquisition.
Do you believe music is a new powerful outlet in supporting children with autism? Has anyone experienced the benefits of music therapy for Autism for themselves?
