Music therapy practice within the transdisciplinary team in an autism specialist school. This research is a descriptive phenomenological study of a well-established team of music therapists working in an autism specialist school. The need for this study arose from my role in guiding the professional learning needs of this team. Interviews data captures descriptions of the experience of working within a transdisciplinary, educational setting, influences on practice and factors that help sustain that practice over the long-term. Key themes will provide the basis for broader study of clinical frameworks in autism specialist settings.
