VOL 7 EMERGING SPEECH & ORAL MOTOR SKILLS
Liven up learning with these upbeat songs designed to teach special learners the fundamentals of speech. Because many children show a strength in singing even before they are able to speak, music offers an alternate path to communication for individuals with autism, apraxia, Down syndrome, and other developmental disabilities.
Each motivating tune contains simple instructions followed by plenty of response time for children to imitate each target sound, word, sign, or oral motor movement. Skills addressed include word imitation, sign language, yes & no, breath control, requesting, phrase length, object labeling, oral motor skills, and vocal imitation
