“I recommend Dr. LaGasse’s Speech and Language in Music Therapy Course. It worked from theory to research to clinical applications, good resources, accessible, good presentation, and I appreciated a personalized and practical form of testing. It gave me new areas to look into and some intervention ideas to try.”
