Music and movement as therapy for primary language and learning disordered children

Abstract

 This paper presents a music and movement program for young children with primary language and learning disorders. Music and movement therapy has relevance to this population because of the nature of the speech, language and other learning and developmental disabilities. The paper describes how the Yamaha system has been applied in this program to enhance sensory-motor, perceptual and cognitive-linguistic development.

Key words: Music therapy; movement; children; language disorder; learning disorder
