Abstract

Date Presented 4/20/2018

Music may influence the environment to maximize performance in the instrumental activity of daily living of driving. Interestingly, preliminary results of an ongoing pilot study found no significant differences among classical, self-selected, and control conditions. Background music may be a tool to facilitate optimal driving performance in young adults with autism spectrum disorder.
