Neurologic Music Therapy group was led by Becca this past week in symposium. She presented a TDM (Transformational Design Model) on one of her clients who is working on a speech and language goal of improved articulation. She is using an OMREX intervention with kazoo as an initial step to address this goal area.
After Becca presented, the team got creative thinking of ways to expand this intervention to include language. We discussed the importance of always tying breath support exercises with functional speech and language. In order to put this into practice, we split into two groups and created interventions that focused on 2 bilabial consonants: p and m. In less than 30 minutes, we created songs with visuals that focus on each of these letters. The videos of our final products are included below, along with the chords/lyrics and visuals!
