All About Neurological Music Therapy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Neurological music therapy is based on a neuroscience model of music perception and production and the influence of music on functional changes in nonmusical brain and behavior functions. Music therapy is known to help surivors of stroke recover expressive speech. It can also be used to improve cognitive, sensory and motor dysfunctions due to neurological disorders.

This session will introduce you to music therapy and will help you decide if it is an appropriate intervention for your child.
