Teaser: SEMTAP

The Teaser is hosted at Should Be Reading. Be sure to check out the page for the rules.

In any special education music therapy eligibility assessment, the most important element is the comparison of a student's skills (as targeted by his or her Individual Education Plan) with and without the structure of music therapy.
From pg 5 of the SEMTAP: Special Education Music Therapy Assessment Process

No, I don't expect someone not in special ed or music therapy to understand it. :))

I'm willing to bet it does make a difference! Music is universal and I'm sure it can bridge more than just a language barrier. At least, that is what I like to believe.

Me too otherwise I'm wasting a lot of time and effort!

Hmmm - I'm not in either field, but I would guess that music affects the left-brain, allowing the right-brain to focus better???? Or have I got that backwards??

Here's my Teaser!

Actually I encourage my client to make music with me. I have simple percussion instruments for them to use and they are encouraged to sing along with every song (I use mainly live music). Both sides of the brain are involved in music making because it is both a motor and a creative activity. :))

I know you were being facetious but can never pass up an opportunity to talk about my work.
