LI School To Study Music’s Impact On Autism


ROCKVILLE CENTRE, NY — Using a $90,000 grant, Molloy University is creating a study to determine the impact of music therapy on autistic children.

The research will examine whether improvisational music therapy can improve neurological outcomes for autistic children. The study will be done by graduate assistants and music therapists at the Rebecca Center for Music Therapy at Molloy University.

In partnership with the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, researchers will look for a relationship between children’s engagement ability and activity within the mirror neuron system.
