If you missed all the music therapy buzz today, you will want to know that NPR had a very nice program about music therapy on their Science Friday segment. The show featured a panel of guests including Dr. Oliver Sacks and Dr. Connie Tomaino. 

It was a very well rounded show that talked about many different types of music therapy interventions. They also touched on things like funding and reimbursement for music therapy and some new research in the works regarding music therapy and autism. 

The link above will take you to the show's archive page.  Please continue reading for the link to the podcast. 

You will not want to miss the great comments and questions from the pilot that called into the show! She was a great advocate for music therapy and very well-spoken and informed.

One of my favorite parts of the broadcast was when Dr. Tomaino ever so tactfully corrected the show host who had been saying "musical" therapy.  

You can listen to the podcast here.
