Tuned in to Learning’s inventive songs paired with vibrant visual supports are ideal for children ages 2-10 and provide a hands-on opportunity for them to practice early language concepts in a motivating way. Different than typical children’s music, the Tuned in to Learning songs have been customized for special learners, including ample response time, simplified language, and repetition.
This comprehensive program integrates evidence-based techniques from the fields of special education, applied behavior analysis, and music therapy, and gives you the tools to bring students from initial learning, to mastery, and finally generalization. Essential pre-academic and language concepts are taught in this volume, ideal for use in classroom groups, circle time, speech therapy, and individual instruction.
Skills taught in this volume include: colors, shapes, size, action verbs, gender, prepositions, community helpers, categories, weather, and names.
