Beats & Drums

Children and adolescents on the autism spectrum have a high prevalence to anxiety, often exhibiting challenging behaviors when it comes to social interactions with their peers. The power of music is enticing to children. Music calls them to interact with it, to reach out and play an instrument, to sing and to dance, even though at times, interactions may be difficult, they are never the less drawn to it. Children on the autism spectrum fundamentally share similar interests in music to neurotypical developing children, with one advantage; many children children on the autism spectrum have a higher level of affinity with music than their neurotypical peers enabling them to engage at a far deeper and meaningful level in social and non-social levels
