Check out a glimpse of Kaelyn's Music-Directed Speech Therapy session with a Stage 1 GLP and new AAC user!
Music is highly motivating for many gestalt language processors due to musical features like intonation and pitch. You'll notice how this child actually requested help when he gestured for Kaelyn to touch his device, which demonstrates how quickly he has learned the purpose of an AAC device for communication. Furthermore, watch how Kaelyn honours every mode of communication, whether it be speech, gestures, or AAC.
This child also receives GLP-focused intervention with an SLP to expand his repertoire of Stage 1 gestalts.
Lastly, we have the school to thank for letting us work in the sensory room, where this child can receive external sensory input to aid in regulation. We love a full team approach!
