Music Therapy: Another Path to Learning and Communication for Children in the Autism Spectrum

Autor Bitsey King Brunk, Betsey King Brunk
en Limba Engleză Paperback – apr 2004
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!
