I feel that songdrawing is an excellent additional method to be used in occupational therapy. It helps children to become interested in and inspired by movement, drawing, rhythm and song. I completed the basics training in 2014. The training had wonderful songs and exercises which felt really captivating.
I’m a speech therapist working as a private practitioner. My clients are mainly children and young people with severe development disabilities and autism spectrum disorders. I also work with various language and speech disorders. I use the method as a tool when working with individual children and groups. Songdrawing has provided me with new views on therapy work even in surprising situations. The method has got me interested in the connections between music, language and the brain, a subject which was not familiar to me before.
