 Stroke rehabilitation through music therapy

Melodic intonation therapy


This article highlights the benefits of music therapy in stroke rehabilitation.  I have observed neurologic music therapy to be effective in rehabilitation after a stroke.  Neurologic music therapy is effective in increasing expressive language, improving gait, and improving motor planning skills after suffering a stroke.  In my practice I have found the use of melodic intonation therapy combined with therapeutic singing to be extremely effective for increasing speech in clients with non-fluent aphasia and apraxia.  The second article featured here gives an in depth look at melodic intonation therapy.
