Description - Clinical Applications of Music Therapy in Developmental Disability, Paediatrics and Neurology by Tony Wigram

Music therapy has long been regarded as a useful form of intervention with people with developmental disabilities. It is now increasingly practised in medical settings as well. This work focuses on this area and on the growing interest in using music therapy in paediatrics and neurology. It includes accounts of work with autistic clients, abused children, the neurologically-impaired, hospitalized infants and premature babies, and develops both theory and practice. Reflecting on the new challenges this area of work will bring to music therapistsand the growing importance of training, the book concludes with a section on supervision and education.
