The Benefits of Music Therapy

Music Therapy can provide Autism-Specific help through developing:

  • Social Skills: self-other awareness, sharing, turn-taking, waiting and eye-contact through musical exchanges

  • Imagination: playful musical interactions may encourage less rigid patterns in behaviour and flexibility

  • Communication: nurturing production of vocal sounds/ singing words/choice making

  • Sensory Integration: developing tolerance of sounds/pitches and instrument textures

  • Concentration: encouraging musical on-task behaviour, following musical directions and actions

  • Parent-Infant Bonding: facilitating a safe space for parents-infants to bond in fun musical exchanges

“Making a Change” – Mac NI has linked up with Shane Harvey HPC Registered Senior Music Therapist to deliver this exciting programme.
