This study focused on the feasibility of using the concert harp as a communication channel for children with autism. Two qualitative case studies using constant comparison analysis were conducted over a six-day observation period resulting in field notes both from the primary researcher and the teacher who regularly worked with the two children in the study. These notes yielded five emergent themes and revealed positive responses by both of the children in using the concert harp as a communication channel.
