Our gestalt language processors (otherwise known as intonation babies!) benefit so much from having musical language input.
I'm seeing this firsthand with Music-Directed Speech Therapy -- a unique service we offer which is carried out by a board certified music therapist (Kaelyn!) and overseen by me (Halle!) based on my SLP treatment goals.
I've been integrating music so much into my practice, even though music therapy is (definitely) not my background! Lately, I've been loving creating songs to go with activities that emphasize easily-mitigable Stage 1 gestalts. I made this song up today during a session and it's here to stay!
Did you catch all the gestalts?
Let me know if you try this (or something similar) with your GLP!
