Music and Movement

I have always enjoyed adding movement and music to my speech/language therapy sessions.  I started with Dr. Jean many years ago http://drjean.org and added Brain Gym http://www.braingym.org.  Practicing kid’s yoga poses and yoga stories prior to therapy sessions enhanced focus, self-regulation, and social interactions.

SmartMoves™ is a welcome addition to intervention/coaching/therapy/tutoring as we continue with purposeful movement to stretch our minds and bodies (http://www.fablevision.com/smartmoves). The CD’s are great but I wished for a more portable way to use music and movement with my clients as I work with them in their homes, schools, and in study rooms at the public library.  I love it when wishes come true!  I learned about the Me Moves™ app for iPad during the Integrated Listening Systems training.  I like to do a focus sequence before reading tutoring sessions.  Calming + focus sequences are appropriate for executive skills coaching sessions.  The joy sequence is good anytime!

 

If you haven’t added music and movement to your therapy yet, try some of these.  I think you will like the results.

Best,

Robin

PS  If you are looking for the MeMoves app in the app store, you will not find it.  Google Me Moves and open up their website.  Click on Guide and you will see instructions for downloading.
