“The body of literature regarding music in intervention with children and adolescents with autism reports the following benefits:

  • increased appropriate social behaviors and decreased inappropriate, stereotypical, and self-stimulating behaviors;
  • increased attention to task;
  • increased vocalizations, verbalizations, gestures, and vocabulary comprehension;
  • increased communicative acts and engagement with others”
