SIPARI®     is     a     directed     music-supported     treatment     approach developed     to     improve     language     and     speech     capabilities     of patients   suffering   from   chronic   aphasia.   SIPARI®   was   developed by   Dr.   Jungblut   and   was   first   tried   and   tested   in   cooperation   with the     Medical     Faculty     of     the     University     of     Witten-Herdecke, Germany. In   a   controlled   group-study   with   patients   suffering   from   chronic non-fluent     aphasia     (average     duration     of     aphasia:     11     years) significant   improvements   of   75%   of   all   patients   were   assessed   by a   standardized   language   procedure,   the   Aachener   Aphasie   Test (AAT). Meanwhile      further      single      case      studies      substantiate      the extraordinary    efficacy    of    SIPARI®    in    the    treatment    of    severely impaired     chronic     aphasia     patients     and     also     patients     who additionally suffer from apraxia of speech. In   2010   SIPARI®   was   listed   in   the   Cochrane   Review   “Music   therapy for   acquired   brain   injury”   in   the   category   “communication”   as   the only   evidence-based   method.   ref.:   Bradt   J,   Magee   WL,   Dileo   C,   Wheeler   BL, McGilloway    E.    Music    therapy    for    acquired    brain    injury.    Cochrane    Database    of Systematic    Reviews    2010,    Issue    7.    Art.    No.:    CD006787.    DOI:    10.1002/14651858. CD006787.pub2. On    January    24,    2011,    the    World    Health    Organization    (WHO) awarded   The   Cochrane   Collaboration   a   seat   on   the   World   Health Assembly    allowing    the    Collaboration    to    provide    input    on    WHO health   resolutions.   The   Cochrane   Collaboration   was   accepted   as   a Non    Governmental    Organization    in    Official    Relations    with    the WHO    at    the    WHO’s    Executive    Board    meeting,    establishing    a partnership    with    formalized    communication    between    the    two organizations. Music   and   language   consist   of   melodic   and   rhythmic   elements, although    these    basic    components    are    differently    emphasized. Undoubtedly,     the     human     voice     represents     the     most     direct connection   between   music   and   language.   Starting   from   singing towards   intonation   up   to   prosody,   the   human   voice   takes   over   a bridging     function,     which     combines     rhythmic     and     melodic components    in    a    unique    manner    because    transitions    can    be produced   step   by   step.   Therefore,   specifically   targeted   rhythmic- melodic   voice   training   represents   the   starting   point   of   the   SIPARI® method.    Apart    from    the    voice,    further    instruments    are    used. Rhythmic      cognition      trainings,      which      are      performed      on instruments,     vocally     or     in     combination     serve     to     encourage planning   and   sequencing   performance.   Another   basic   component of      this      method      constitutes      joint      instrument      playing      on instruments,   which   can   be   used   without   any   musical   experience. These   communication   trainings   support   social   interaction   but   also promote cognitive functions (e.g. attention, working memory).
Treatment    objectives    using    SIPARI®    include    improving    linguistic, motor,    and    cognitive    functions    and    thereby    supporting    speech- motor     processes     and     those     speech-systematic     processes     that encourage planning and sequencing performance. The    SIPARI®    treatment    is    offered    as    individual    as    well    as    group therapy. The    duration    of    an    indivual    therapy    session    is    50    minutes.    If required,   home   visits   can   be   arranged.   There   is   no   agreement   to cover    costs    by    health    insurances.    At    the    beginning,    a    SIPARI® diagnostic   examination   is   conducted   in   order   to   make   sure   that   this treatment is suitable for the respective patient. In   order   to   intensify   motor   and   cognitive   improvement,   training-CDs and   DVDs   can   be   purchased   for   home   training   from   therapists   who successfully completed the SIPARI® training.       Appointments by arrangement If you have further questions, please contact Dr. rer. medic.
