Abstract: Studies have shown the benefits of music to individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in different areas, however, teaching children with ASD to play a music instrument can be challenging. The current study focused on teaching piano skills to children with ASD, and tried to seek an effective and efficient method. Equivalence-based instruction (EBI) has been applied in teaching various skills among different populations. The study examined the effectiveness of EBI in teaching early piano skills to 6 children with ASD. Future research direction was discussed.
