music therapy interventions



In a previous post, Drumming to Foster Fluency in Speech, I talked about using the drum to impact fluency (and articulation) in speech training experiences.  I wanted to share one of my recent topics, the Winter Olympics!  The sentences I created are a representation of the ones I use with teenagers, young adults, and adult clients, but you can easily adapt the sentence to work with any age.

Intervention Overview:

Step 1: Play each word on the drum as you say it.

Step 2: Play the drum only on the words marked with a drum symbol as you say the sentence.
