SOUNDS IN MOTION was originally designed to improve auditory perception and stimulate correct articulation. It has also proven to be effective for developing phonemic awareness and early literacy. SOUNDS IN MOTION can be taught collaboratively in pre-K through first grade classrooms or in small group settings. It is unique in its use of body movements from the VerboTonal System to train perception and production of phonemes. In this full-day workshop, participants will learn to implement SIM with children in both regular and special education classes.

Presenter: Holly Thomas, M.S. CCC-SLP, Clinical Director and Head of the Speech-Language Department at The Gillen Brewer School in New York, NY.

She has a B.S. from Northwestern University’s School of Speech and a M.S. degree in speech-language pathology from Teachers College, Columbia University.
