Clinical Practice (assessment, diagnosis, treatment, knowledge translation/EBP, implementation science, program development)
Recent clinical research has demonstrated the strong neural sharing between music, speech, and language. This research has informed the clinical application Neurologic Music Therapy interventions for speech and language impairments. This presentation will cover the neuroanatomy of speech and language, the neuroscience of music, and the interventions for speech and language disorders. Presenters will also discuss the different treatment approaches from an inpatient to community-based program for a variety of populations, including Stroke, TBI, PD, and MS. The attendees will have an opportunity to workshop the interventions reviewed and learn how to apply these principles in their own practice.
