Music and autism

“When you sing, musical vibrations move through you, fixing your physical and emotional landscape.”
—Saif Naser

Singing provides catharsis across the full emotional spectrum. It can give a directly-experienced, felt-sense of happiness. It’s a mood lifter & antidepressant with no side effects. And it’s not news to health professionals that mental & physical health are intimately linked.” (Journal of Music Therapy: Vol. 36, No. 2, pp. 125–143. Singing as a Therapeutic Agent, in The Etude, 1891—1949 Bryan C. Hunter, PhD, MT-BCaa Nazareth College, Rochester, New York.)
