Autism Spectrum Disorder is a developmental disorder that is characterized by verbal and non-communication deficits, social difficulties, and atypical behaviors. Music therapy can help address these issues because of the experience of music. Music therapy is a strength-based, process-oriented experience that utilizes the power of music for physical, social, cognitive, and emotional wellness. Children connect to music beyond words, making music therapy an ideal treatment for communication disorders.
