Impact of musical intervention in children with LD

Summary

The main hypothesis is that music can positively impact both cognitively and structurally in children with neurological disorders. Therefore, this project consists of implementing a musical intervention aimed at promoting the development of neurocognitive skills (including prosodic ones) and evaluating a possible structural change in the brain physiology of children with severe language impairment.

Challenge

Neurson disorders are a heterogeneous group of complex neurodevelopmental disorders, sharing a series of common and characteristic symptoms related to deficits in social communication and restricted and repetitive sensory and / or motor behaviors. They are usually disorders of neurobiological origin starting in childhood that present a chronic evolution, and different degrees of affectation and functional adaptation depending on the case, the evolutionary moment and the cognitive development

Solution

Music and speech share a similar temporal structure, and connections between music processing and speech processing have been identified. Some neurological pathologies can compromise cognitive development in general, such as PH and there are indications that musical interventions promote their development in different populations with atypical development (TDL, ASD, Williams syndrome, dyslexia) all of them represented within Fundacion Querer children.

Long-Term Impact

There are two levels of expected results for this study: Cognitive level: improvement of the child's prosodic abilities and cognitive abilities Physiological-cerebral level: possible structural modification of the connections of the language tracts (auditory impact) with direct impact on the improvement of language. The direct beneficiaries would be the child population that suffers from language disorders and who, through a musical intervention, could improve their cognitive and language
