Patients at our clinic have benefited greatly from the combination of speech therapy and music therapy. Studies have shown that music therapy can help reduce stress, alleviate pain, enhance memory, and promote effective expressive and receptive communication skills. Combined with speech therapy, the benefits can be even greater.
According to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, the similarities between language and music are very close. Music and language are both universal to humans, and both use pitch, timbre and rhythm. They also have auditory, vocal and visual uses, and are built on structure and rules. Both therapies can vastly improve the overall well-being for everyone from seniors to very young children.
