Course Webinar: Beat the Beat: Rhythm-Based Intervention for Communication Disorders

Course description: There is a growing body of evidence indicating connections between music and language abilities. Functional neuroimaging allows us to study the relations more systematically. This course was designed to offer an overview of the research in this emerging discipline, and a sample of the variety of applications for speech/language interventions of clinical and aging populations.

Presented by Dr. Yune S. Lee

Originally presented: Monday, December 14, 2020

Dr. Lee received his Ph.D. in Cognitive Neuroscience from Dartmouth College and postdoctoral training at the University of Pennsylvania. He is currently an assistant professor at School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences at the University of Texas at Dallas. He conducts several funded research programs that aim to develop music-based intervention programs for communication disorders due to brain injury and neurodegeneration.

Duration: 1 hour.

Target audience: Speech-language pathologists who are providing therapy for people who have aphasia.

Course accreditation:

ASHA subject code: Acquired and Degenerative Language Disorders (Excluding Traumatic Brain Injury) – 3030

ASHA content area: P—Professional: Information and techniques dealing with the diagnosis and treatment of speech, language, and hearing disorders; this content code is used by audiologists and SLPs directly in their work with clients.

  2. Describe how musicality affects speech and language performance.
  3. List 2 music-based intervention programs for speech/language impairments secondary to neurological/developmental disorders.
