Music therapy is much more than finding the right song to fit the mood. It is a research-based allied health profession that uses music to help patients achieve nonmusical goals. Music therapy is an innovative and powerful intervention to improve:

  • Social skills, including sharing, turn taking, and social communication
  • Motor skills, including both fine and gross motor movements

Music therapy for children with disabilities is especially effective, including children with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
