Does your school limit the time an autistic child can spend in music classes? Would your child be able to attend music class with a dedicated educational assistant? Did your school eliminate music classes for “budgetary” reasons? If you answered, “Yes”, to any of these questions, you will find the following short report exciting. School boards must not think of music as “luxury” or “only for talented children”, because music can make all children better learners.
“The findings show that musical intervention can make a major difference when it comes to improving social skills in children with ASD.”
