Samenvatting

Introduction: Music has influence on emotions, motor skills and social cohesion. It’s known that music has positive results during speech-language therapy – that’s the reason music therapy exists. However, there isn’t any information about the effects of background music in a speech-language therapy session. The literature says that background music has positive effects on focus and attention. What kind of music is the best, is different for every individual. All speech-language pathologists (SLPs) have experience in working with clients with focus and attention deficits. This research examines what SLPs expect in the client’s focus and attention, when there’s background music during the therapy.
Method: The data are found by qualitative research. SLPs, working in The Netherlands and primarily found through Facebook, replied to the online questionnaire. The SLPs were asked what, in their point of view, positive and negative expectations are of playing background music during speech-language therapy. They were also questioned about their expectations of having the right background music in therapy and about their expectations of the results on the client’s focus and attention. The data were coded, and counted to show the urgency.
Results: 119 respondents replied to the questionnaire. Positive expectations are that the background music has positive effects on the client’s work ethics. Beside, it has positive effects for the therapy for some clients and has a positive effect on relaxation and enjoyment. Negative expectations are that focus is more on the music, than on the therapy. Also, playing background music isn’t an opportunity for every client, it disturbs the therapy and playing music is too difficult for the SLP. 18,5% of the SLPs expects no improvement in the client’s attention and focus. 28,6% does expect improvement. 52,9% is unbiased.
Discussion: The most respondents expect an improvement, or are unbiased. The respondents and the literature both agree that background music makes the client more relaxed and joyful, but if the wrong music is played, it wouldn’t cause an improvement in attention and focus. The high number of respondents - maybe because of the originality of the research’s topic and the way the respondents were found – reflects reality of the SLPs population in The Netherlands. The respondents are curious about the actual effects of background music during speech-language therapy. Further research can show if playing the right background music is achievable for the SLP and what the actual effects are of background music during speech-language therapy.
