Autism Spectrum Disorder & Music - It been shown how constructive music education is in all areas of cognitive development, but it also proves to be especially helpful to those with ASD. As showcased by this infographic, it basically boils down to the two most indicative symptoms across the spectrum of those with autism.

Music Punch Cards are a quick (and fun!) way to assess! Designed for the youngest learners in your music classroom, these cards ask students to sort pitched and non-pitched instruments and to identify percussion instruments that are scraped, struck or shaken.
Assess your students on pitch in 5 minutes or less! Love that this set comes with 20 different exit tickets/exit slips. It's an easy way to take grades and show progress with my elementary music students.
