Wimpory, Dawn; And Others
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v25 n5 p541-52 Oct 1995

MIT fosters interpersonal contact and joint attention by synchronizing live music to adult-child interactions. Results offer preliminary evidence that MIT facilitates playful joint action formats that generalize beyond therapy. (PB)
