PrAACtical Puppet Power

We are huge fans of using music in AAC intervention and have learned so much from talented music therapists who really understand how to use their medium to support language learning.

In this video, Ryan Judd, of the Rhythm Tree, discusses why hand puppets can be such a valuable addition when singing with language learners. He demonstrates the method with a child with Williams Syndrome who is practicing the use of prepositions. It’s clear that this strategy has lots of prAACtical potential.
