Course Description: Huntington’s disease is a neurodegenerative disorder that impacts the physical and cognitive abilities of an individual. These impacts can negatively impact the individual’s ability to be expressive and communicate with others. Music therapy has been supported by research to a valid non-pharmacological intervention that positively impacts communication and emotions. This brief one hour advance course presents a research protocol to examine the efficacy of music therapy in the treatment of Huntington’s disease.
