The article examines music therapy literature from 1990 to 2012 focusing on children aged 0 to 5-years old.

The active methods were most commonly singing and playing with instruments. Children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) were most strongly represented together with paediatric patients and children with developmental disabilities. Interaction between family members and the positive factors were emphasized in the articles. The importance of fun and enjoyment was underlined throughout all client groups.

In addition, related areas of research, cross-scientific viewpoints, and common fields of interests should be taken into consideration in the future. ...
