The aim of this research was to investigate whether or not autistic children benefit from classical music therapy in terms of their linguistic abilities. This study used a research design known as a pre-experimental one-group pre-test and post-test design for its investigation. The type of sampling used was called purposive sampling, and there was a total of 30 respondents in the sample. A questionnaire served as the tool for the study, and the results were evaluated using a paired t-test at a significance level of 0.05. The findings indicated that there was an impact of classical music therapy on language abilities in autistic children, as shown by a p value of 0.000 or a p value less than 0.005. According to the findings of this research, which showed that autistic children received benefits from music therapy in the form of improved language abilities, it is anticipated that parents who have children diagnosed with autism would be able to expose their children to classical music therapy. In certain therapeutic settings, music therapy may be combined with other types of treatment.
