Communication

Musical forms and songs resemble verbal communication and provide structure and motivation for communicating with one another. They facilitate relationships to increase self-expression and speaking in a non-threatening environment.

Social Behaviors

Music therapy aids in reducing negative self-stimulatory responses and encourages socially acceptable participation. The limbic system is involved in the processing of music, emotions, behaviors, and feeling states. Individuals have the opportunity to practice non-musical skills useful in other settings. Music therapy also builds social confidence and self-esteem.

Focus & Attention

Music is processed in multiple areas of the brain, including the prefrontal cortex, inferior frontal cortex, and superior temporal lobes. This stimulates cognitive function, memory, and provides organization for the sensory system. Since music therapy influences mood, it fosters learning and joint attention. Memorizing songs and rhymes is a useful tool for developing literacy, as well.
