This is a great Article by the American Music Therapy Associations past president Ronna Kaplan. She explores music therapy in Early Education stating that" Music therapists sometimes use arts integration to address state academic content standards. In a preschool class where many of the children have speech and language delays, the music therapist helps children identify matching sounds and recognize rhymes in songs and words, part of a core pre-kindergarten language arts standard."
For those of you interested in how music therapy can benefit pre-school children or ways in which Music therapists engage young children through music this is a great read! :)
