Evidence of Program's Success

"The problem with having aphasia is I find it hard to explain things in detail, trouble finding words that I want to say, and it becomes frustrating to me at times. So I try to keep my words short and sweet.

The aphasia choir gives me hope that I will continue to improve my speech through singing. The brain is complex and hard to understand organ because it allowed me the ability to sing before I could even talk again. I love the camaraderie among my fellow survivors as it gives me strength, support and inspiration. Music is very powerful and its has already greatly improved my speech and also gives me confidence while I am speaking.  

[...] This has been a wonderful experience for [us] and it is by far my favorite therapy for speech improvement. I highly recommend aphasia choir for anyone having speech difficulties or just to have fun!

Description

The Adaptive Music Lab at Rehabilitative Rhythms is a first of it's kind innovative program in Colorado offering consultative adaptive music equipment/tech services to individuals with disabilities that prevent them from fully engaging in traditional music making and instrument playing

Our goal is to help individuals and families get set up with tools that can be used to make music out in their school and community-based environments.

We work with individuals with both neurological (stroke, spinal cord and brain injury, Parkinson's, MS, etc.) and developmental disabilities (cerebral palsy, autism, Down's syndrome, William's syndrome, etc.) who may be struggling to engage in music as a return to a previous leisure activity, in school-based settings, or other community settings.
