Review of the Literature: Impact of Music on Children with Special Needs

Art is beneficial not only to those who receive it but also to those who engage in its creation. This sets the context for looking at the arts as therapy in multiple contexts; there is a long history of art therapy that has existed and evolved for centuries in a variety of formats. There is a need to explore art as therapy for different populations, including its impact on students with special needs. This paper examines the research literature on music and students with special needs. Information was gathered from academic library searches of peer-reviewed articles using online resources.
