Musical Communication is an intervention developed from 'Musical Interactions' by Wendy Prevezer. It uses music and song to develop "reasons, means and opportunities" to communicate through the use of symbols, subjects. (ACE SEN Consultancy).
The children in Purple 2 really enjoy Musical Communication, this intervention helps with engagement skills, turn taking, listening skills as well as promoting the children to interact and communicate spontaneously. Children find activities that are delivered through singing and music less demanding and low pressure to communicate which helps them to interact and communicate in the session without feeling pressure.
The sessions are made up of songs the children know, introduced new songs, interactive sessions where the children are encouraged to take turns, interact, and copy. It is 20 minutes of fun and learning!
