Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes are making their therapy debut this morning as we talk about speech production! As a music therapist, I have worked with many patients on speech goals whether it be recovering speech from a brain injury or improving existing speech skills. There are many tools the music therapist uses to address speech issues, many of which are also used by speech therapists. Today’s therapy tune is a special treat not only because we have a special guest involved, but because in this short clip I will show you how one song can involve 3 “musical” oral motor techniques which aid in speech production at completely different levels of ability. Vocalize, Articulate and Formulate. Three simple steps to remember 🙂 Enjoy!
