ASD and Music Therapy

Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

 

The history of modern music therapy stems from a special education pioneer, Dr Clive Robbins and a American composer, Dr Paul Nordoff. Nordoff and Robbins visited many special education settings across Europe and North America creating a format of music therapy that is widely adopted in the present day. Children living with autism were the focus of their research and since then there have been a wealth of studies to uncover the benefits of music therapy with this client group. Weather it is a private referral or a mainstream/special school, music therapists have a clear and present focus on supporting individuals living with Autism and benefit people in the following ways.
