Presentation at the World Congress of Audiology
Executive Director Dr. Erin Parkes and voice teacher Sarah Tomaszweski are looking forward to presenting at the World Congress of Audiology in Vancouver this month! Erin and Sarah will present "Would singing lessons serve to provide improvement of pitch and timing in the auditory brainstem? A pilot study." This research project, in collaboration with Dr. Caryn Bursch of APD Ottawa and Dr. Amineh Koravand of University of Ottawa, involves providing six months of voice lessons with a curriculum specifically developed to improve pitch and timing issues in children with auditory processing disorder. Preliminary results are very promising! The study is ongoing--if you have a child with APD and are interested in participating, please contact us!
