Music Education for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder

Oxford University Press

Music listening is explored as an avenue for promoting receptivity, joint attention, relaxation, and sensory stimulation among children with autisms spectrum disorder and their caregivers. Teachers are provided with lists of numerous examples of recorded music for use with the educational interventions profiled in this chapter. Five pedagogical principles for listening experiences (musical genres and styles, length, regularity, multisensory engagement, and familiarity) guide teachers in choosing their own music for use with the activities outlined here. The chapter concludes with descriptions of educational interventions that guide students in exploring expressive qualities of music such as dynamics and tempo.
