Andy attends music therapy to work on the prosody and volume of his speech. Andy’s speech is often equally stressed and monotone. As music and language are processed in similar areas in the brain, various musical interventions are used to support Andy’s goals.

These include familiar song-singing, improvised songs with variations in rhythm and phrasing, and vocal exploration. Andy has improved in his ability to control his voice from register to register, improved his vocal intonation as well as increasing his speech volume. Awesome job Andy!
