Music Therapy for Autism How to use Music to Teach Social Skills
Hey, everyone! Welcome back to The RhythmTree. My name is Ryan Judd. I am a board certified music therapist here to give you some moregreat ideas on how to use music to help children with special needs. So, today I am going toshow you a social story that I created for one of my clients. Social stories are greatfor kids with Autism, Williams Syndrome and so many other special needs. When you wantto teach a child social skills, a social story should definitely be a part of your strategy.Social stories are great but what I do is take it to the next level by adding musicand then I make it even more captivating and engaging by using an iPad app, a free one,called Story Creator where you can put in
pictures, audio, tutorialâ€¦ It's really cool.You will see what I mean in a second. This social story was to help one of my clientswith learning how to interact and talk with friends and peers. A couple of the words andjargon that I use in this social story are some of the concept he's working on at schoolwhich is â€˜talk time', which basically means, you know, give your friends a chanceto talk to you â€“ don't just dominate the conversation by talking the whole time. I'mreally about listening and asking questions as well as talking. â€˜Bubble space' â€“ yourpersonal space and not getting too close to someone's face, not touching people in inappropriateways when they don't want to be touchedâ€¦
Things like that. It's a concept of â€˜bubblespace' â€“ whole body listening. Yes, we're listening with our ears but we're also listeningwith our eyes. We want to look at the person we're talking to and also have our bodysituated in front of them. You know, we're not squirming around and all that. Those are a couple of the concepts I incorporatedinto this social story. I hope you like it. Please sign up for mynewsletter if you haven't yet â€“ I've got a link right below.

Take care and I'll see you next time.Thank you! â€œWhen I'm at school, I will see my friendsand I will want to talk to them. It might be their turn, it might be mine,everyone gets talk time. When we talk, we have bubble space.We don't get too close to each other's face.I'll try to listen with my eyes and my ears. I'll try to use my whole body to listento my peers.â€�
This Special Ed Teachers RealWorld Lessons will Inspire You Class Act
Noah : My name is Noah. I give coffee to teachers. Cha Ching!! *laughing* Sadie: As a special ed teacher you have on average kids in three different grade levels and within those grade levels depending onwhat students you have you are planning for each of those students.
quot;You are each going to have a cupquot; Noah: Hey! We've got a talker over here. Sadie: So there is the cirriculum aspect, but I'm also trying to think long rangeand with the families looking at okay, where are these kids going like high schooland beyond the rest of their lives. My name is Sadie Guthrieand I am a special ed teacher at Lawton Alternative School. (SoulPancake Presents)
(Class Act) I think the advantage special ed teachershave is that we get so close to the family and we work so hard with certain studentseveryday. That you kind of. you can't not have an emotional relationship with these families and kids. Sometimes it's really difficult for specialed,
or in school settings to be like quot;Okay go talk to this personquot;. But if you don't have like a common ground it's pretty difficult. And I think when I thought to bring coffeecart to Lawton. I just really thought there could be nothing better to like, improve our communityand give the kids in my class, like, more opportunity to become a partof the greater school community. Wedad: My name is WedadMy job in the coffee cart is to ask the teachers
if they want coffee. Jacky: My name is Jacky.I am the barista. Nathan: My name is Nathan.I am the cashier. I take the money. David: My name is David.I pour the coffee. Sadie: I think everyone was a little hesitantto start. They like didn't really. .get the purpose. But then once I kind of explainedwe are learning job skills,
and independenceand responsibility and all of these functional skills and you know we are being a part of the community! It kind of started to clickand then once we started doing it , it just, you know, rocketed! We go to Devil's Teeth which is a local bakery and we get a baked good donation. We are like now out in the ACTUAL community
