Tuned In To Learning Vol. 8: Skill Building for Students with Multiple Disabilities
By Michelle Lazar, MA, MT-BC, Autism Specialist & Jeremy Jensen, MM, MT-BC, Music Therapist
Age Range: Children and Young Adults
This volume of Tuned in to Learning was designed for students with orthopedic impairments such as cerebral palsy, Rett syndrome, Angelman syndrome, and related disorders. Different than typical recordings, these specialized songs include 10-30 seconds of response time after each instruction to accommodate for processing delays.
Skills addressed include cause & effect, visual tracking, augmentative communication, turn taking, grasp & release, functional motor skills, instrument play, and tactile exploration.
*Note that in order for students to fully participate, selected songs are designed to be used in conjunction with basic rhythm instruments or a voice output device such as a BigMack® switch.
- Music CD with 10 original songs
- Full color insert with song lyrics, sample IEP objectives, instruction and activities for each song, and a research overview section
