Music therapy may not lead to big benefits for kids with autism | Vital World News

"Music therapy - like many other interventions that have been suggested - does not improve autism symptoms," said senior author Christian Gold, of the Grieg Academy Music Therapy Research Center and Uni Research Health in Bergen, Norway.
ASDs are developmental disorders that can lead to social, communication and behavioural challenges. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that one in 68 children in the U.S. has been diagnosed with an ASD. The anecdotal link between music and ASD goes back many years, Gold and colleagues write in JAMA. Usual care could range from early intensive behavioral interventions, to speech and language therapy, to sensory-motor therapies and medications, Gold told Reuters Health by email. 'Efforts are already underway to improve music therapy, for example by improving their specific skills or by involving parents more actively.' - Christian Gold "Music therapy is also among the interventions that have been recommended when it is available," he said. "Some parents who are frustrated with behavioural interventions may experience it as bringing back the joy of being with their child in a natural way." After five months of therapy, the researchers did not find a difference between the two groups of children on a measure of social skills. Gold said parents should continue to pursue music therapy if they feel it's a good match for their children, but don't expect it to be a so-called treatment. "Since the very first descriptions of autism in the 1940s, it has been noted that many people with autism have a special interest in music," he said. Gold added that more research is warranted. "Efforts are already underway to improve music therapy, for example by improving their specific skills or by involving parents more actively," he said.

"I originally trained as a music therapist but when I went into practice 15 years ago, I found that so little formal research had been done on how or why it works," says Prof Christian Gold of the Grieg Academy Department of Music at the University of Bergen in Norway.

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).
