Scientists reveal drumming helps schoolchildren diagnosed with autism: Drumming for just an hour a week shown to improve students' ability to follow instructions and interact with peers -
Drumming for 60 minutes a week can benefit children diagnosed with autism and supports learning at school, according to a new scientific study. Research involved pupils from Milestone School in Gloucester who took part in a ten-week drumming programme comprising two 30-minute sessions each week. Class teachers evaluated behavioural changes within the classroom across the ten-week drumming intervention, with preliminary evidence highlighting positive outcomes. Movement control was also enhanced while performing daily tasks outside the school environment, including an improved ability to concentrate during homework.
