Aphasia Choir Concert
WHAT: Members of Lubbock’s 15-member Aphasia Choir, organized by the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Allied Health Sciences’ Stroke/Aphasia Recovery (STAR) Program, will perform songs from a variety of genres including religious, classical, pop and folk. Admission to the concert is free.
WHEN: 7 p.m., Tuesday (Aug. 7)
WHERE: Quaker Avenue Church of Christ, 1701 Quaker Ave., Unity Center Entrance
EVENT: Recent studies have shown that music, melody and rhythm, along with traditional speech therapies like cognitive linguistic therapy, programmed stimulation and stimulation-facilitation therapy, can help people with aphasia and other language disorders.
Aphasia is often a result of stroke, head injury, a brain tumor or other neurological problem. The disorder is an acquired communication impairment that affects a person’s ability to express him or herself through speech and writing, and/or to understand the speech and writing of others.
