MUSIC AND MOVEMENT SESSION FOR CHILDREN WITH PMLD
The session is by no means prescriptive and is designed to be adaptable and to take advantage of your own knowledge base. Although we have included some basic instruction, these can be expanded on within the individual activities.
Planning sheets are included to help the smooth running of your sessions and may be printed for each person working with a child.
In the development of this CD, it became apparent that the adults using the music were split between having vocal instructions during each track or no vocal instructions.
To cater for this we have provided two versions of the session on the CD. Track 1-10 with vocal instruction and track 11-20 without. The session without instruction also allows for flexibility in your session.
The ‘hello' song at the beginning, by its nature, has vocals in both versions.
The music has been developed to incorporate modern sounds and rhythms, as well as traditional relaxing music in the HMC style and each track has been designed for a particular activity.
The running order of the CD (total time 31min 40sec) and content of each activity has been developed using our own knowledge and many years participation in music and movement sessions and consultation with our colleagues .The CD has been used to good effect at St Luke's Primary School in Scunthorpe.
With regards to any physical aspect of the session and/or any physical needs of the children you are working with, consultation must be sought from your supporting physiotherapist.
We are not physiotherapists and cannot advise on the needs of individual children. This CD is designed purely to be used in conjunction with individual movement plans and as a tool to enable the smooth running of your music and movement sessions.
