Music Therapy: Another Path to Learning and Communication for children on the Autism Spectrum By Betsey King Brunk, MMT, MT-BC 124 Pages Music therapy is the use of music to address non-musical goals. More and more parents and professionals are finding that music can break down barriers for children with autism in areas such as cognition, communication, and socialization. While music therapists are experienced professionals who create unique interventions, many of the principles of music therapy can be implemented by other therapists, teachers, and parents—even by people who do not consider themselves musical! This book explains how to use the many elements of music to foster communication, and teaches you how to adapt music to meet a child';s needs. Visual aids and already-written songs will get you started! Reactions from actual teachers: "Very upbeat and keeps you interested! Good ideas for classroom and therapy.""I Like how it helps with memorization of skills!""Gave great ideas and examples.""Great information. I never thought of music to help students!""Gave me lots of ideas for my own daughter, as well as my students."
