Abstract

This study considers the way in which music
is currently used as an intervention both
therapeutically and within the classroom in
mainstream and special education, and asks
whether it has further potential to enhance
learning for children with autistic spectrum
disorder (ASD). It includes a review of the recent
literature regarding the use of music with children
with ASD and suggests interventions that are
measured against current diagnostic categories.
Interventions considered address difficulties and
differences within the areas of social interaction,
communication, understanding and imagination.
The concept of musical ‘special interests’ of
children with ASD being harnessed to enhance
learning is also considered.
