When can I start using Music Therapy for my child with Autism?

Music therapy is something that can be started at a very young age since children on the autism spectrum do find it difficult to understand and follow commands and communicate non-verbally, and thus, moving forward, have problems in understanding body language. Music from a young age is found to increase the ability to associate some sounds with communication of needs as it helps in connecting the auditory and motor functions of the brain. This, in turn, helps in improvement in understanding of verbal commands. By pairing music with actions, and with repetitive training, the brain pathways which are involved in speech can be taught to function according to the need of the child.
