Transcript of Sounds in Motion

By: Hillary O'Toole & Sam Apgar Sounds In Motion What is Sounds In Motion? * Is an interventional program designed to develop listening skills in children,
* This in turn helps to improve articulation, and vocabulary skills, auditory memory, phonemic awareness and early literacy.
* It is used primarily with pre-kindergarten through first grade students, What is sound in motion
(cont.) * SIM is also applicable to older students who are having difficulty learning to read.
* It enables speech-language pathologists to work collaboratively with teachers in regular education and special education classrooms, in developing oral language
and early reading and writing skills.
* It also acts as an early diagnostic tool,
identifying children who may need further evaluation. How does SIM work? * It consists of 15 weekly sessions, each lasting
30-40 minutes.
* The lessons are taught collaboratively by the SLP (Speech Language Pathologist) and the classroom teacher.
* Every session includes: a review of the body movements for previously taught phonemes; an introduction of movements for 2 new phonemes and practice combining these movements with those previously learned to create syllables and words; * It also includes a specific listening activity (such as following directions, or auditory discrimination); and a language activity in the form of a Rebus story, or rhyme.
* Since great emphasis is spent on listening skills in SIM, two sessions are also devoted to teaching the children about noise abuse and how to protect their hearing.
* Children are tested prior to, during, and after the completion of the program to evaluate their communication and reading skills How does SIM work? Movements of SIM Short A- Begin with hands in front of your thighs, come over the head, and bring the arms out and around to the sides.
