The development of music therapy procedures with speech and language disorders
Journal/Book: Journal of Music Therapy. 1974; 11: 74-80.
Abstract: Discusses work since 1958 at Florida State University concerning the relationships between music therapy and speech therapy, resulting in a number of research studies and reports. A review of pertinent studies indicates that accumulated experience with the use of music therapy in speech and language disorders has produced a gradual refinement of procedures and evaluation. Support is growing for the idea that music therapy is not only an additional modality adjunctive to speech pathology, but that it has unique contributions to make, both independently and in interdisciplinary ways.
