10 Treatments for Autism
9. Music therapy
One of the most unorthodox approaches to autism treatment uses music therapy. Practitioners call this method auditory integration training. The idea is that listening to various types of music played at different levels and tones produces positive reactions in autistic people. This treatment lacks serious medical studies to testify to its effectiveness. Conventional doctors typically would not recommend it, as they view it at best as a waste of time and money.
