This book was first published in 1978 and was the first of its kind to analyze the effect of music therapy on the development of the autistic child. It contained detailed accounts of the music therapy techniques found to be effective with different types of autistic children, and illustrated these with case studies drawn from the author's original research. This new edition retains all the text of the first and adds three new chapters, reflecting the depth of research music therapy has received over the last ten years and its important position within the whole therapy of autistic children. Written by Auriel Warwick, a former student of Juliette Alvin, these chapters describe how parents can be involved with their autistic children in the therapeutic process, and illustrates the problems and rewards found in the musical and personal relationships which evolve.
