Course Description

This presentation provides a crash course in the underlying musical properties of the verbal scripts, lines, and phrases that Gestalt Processors acquire so naturally. During this course, Corinne explains how to bring intentional acoustics and motivating rhythms into your play-based language modeling. In addition, she will equip you with ready-to-use techniques and activities to supercharge your sessions and help your Gestalt Processors feel seen, heard, and understood.

All 1-3 hour courses included for $89 / Year


By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

Describe five musical properties that can influence a Gestalt Processor’s acquisition of meaning.
Explain three vocal modeling strategies that can support Gestalt Processors.
List three musical activities that can promote Gestalt language acquisition.
