In a randomised controlled study, Kim, Wigram and Gold (2008) reported that improvisational music therapy was more effective at facilitating joint attention behaviours and non-verbal social communication skills in children than play.
They also reported more and lengthier eye contact and turn-taking.
Gold, Wigram and Elefant (2006) in a review of the effects of music therapy for individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) conclude that available studies were of limited applicability to clinical practice.
However they did report that findings indicate that music therapy may help children with ASD to improve their communicative skills.
More research is needed to investigate the effects of music therapy in typical clinical practice, and to examine whether the effects are enduring (Gold, Wigram and Elefant, 2006).
