Tag along with Kaelyn to a Music-Directed Speech Therapy session with a gestalt language processor in stage 2 (mitigations!) of the Natural Language Acquisition framework. Kaelyn is working on naturally modelling mitigations (or changing some parts of a script/song within a familiar "frame") in her music directed sessions, and I love how she pauses to allow this child to fill in the blank with a new mitigation (or, she can model something new in that spot!).
Notice how her client is moving, exploring, and staying regulated with movement while still participating in the session! She also used one of his special interests (bees!) to guide her activity. Well done Kaelyn, we love seeing how your clients are responding to your sessions!
