Exploring Music Therapy for Filipino Autistic Children

Marisa V. Marin

Discipline: Psychology, Music



This study explored the use of music therapy as a means to enhance the therapeutic processes with autistic Filipino children. Using a clinical descriptive and phenomenological approach, five autistic children were purposively selected to attend 12 individual music therapy sessions. Findings show that music therapy can be considered as a therapeutic intervention for children with autism because it addresses their primary concerns such as making connections, developing eye contact and verbalization, facilitating expression of feelings and modifying stereotypic behaviors.
