Little Songs, Big Ideas

Therapy Songs

for Emerging Language

This album by Trish Dearn and Helen Shoemark encourages early sounds and phrases in young children. We intentionally combine melody, harmony, rhythm, tempo and timbre (use of children's voices) to create memorable songs which motivate early learners to join in and get to know their own voices. Each song has been assessed in a clinical setting after consultation with Speech Pathologist Georgia Olymbios. Previous research has indicated that the car is an optimal place for song-listening, but all songs are also suitable for home, school, and therapy settings.
