Hello! I would like to share an intervention that I, Amy Calderon, and Elizabeth Sharp wrote during our first semester at CSU Northridge! We were doing our field practicum with children at Lokrantz School for Special Education in Los Angeles, and came up with a tune called “Strum Song” to increase tolerance to sensory input and fine motor skills such as digit isolation. Please feel free to view this intervention in the October 2016 edition of “Imagine Magazine.” You can click on this link and then go to page 132 for viewing:
There you will find the music in standard notation along with an MP3 recording. I had a lot of fun implementing this intervention with Amy Calderon and Elizabeth Sharp, as the kids responded very well to it! Thank you so much and happy viewing!
