I couldn’t be more excited to share with you that The Attention & Perception E-Course is OPEN for enrollment (and available at a discounted rate), this week only, March 22nd – 26th.
Attention and perception are fundamental abilities that underlie all the other skills we work on with our clients and students.
Our clients can’t improve social skills or practice motor skills until they can attend.
Our students can’t increase communication abilities or learn new academic concepts until they can attend.
The Attention and Perception E-Course was created for music therapists, educators, and other professionals who want to deepen their understanding of attention and perception, and use that knowledge to create engaging and effective musical experiences to target those processes.
The E-Course is open for enrollment THIS WEEK ONLY, 3/22 – 3/26, and during that time I’m offering a discount on all three packages:
5 continuing ed credits (pre-approved)
The E-Course offers a thorough overview of attention and perception, and gives a multitude of creative intervention ideas for targeting auditory perception skills, and sustained, selective, divided, alternating, and joint attention.
You’ll watch more than 30 video demonstrations (!!), so you can see what the techniques look like in action during actual music therapy sessions.
And, throughout the course you’ll learn new original songs, as well as strategies for maintaining your clients’ attention throughout a session. You’ll have access to sheet music, colorful visuals, pop song rhythm sheets, listening guides, dance break MP3s, and creativity worksheets.
♪ Advanced: E-Course | Article Review + Reflection Questions
8 continuing ed credits (pre-approved)
For the article review, you’ll read “Joint Attention Responses of Children With Autism Spectrum Disorder to Simple Versus Complex Music” (I’ll provide it to you!) and answer reflection questions. This will allow you to gain a deeper understanding of joint attention and the kind of music that is most effective in eliciting responses to joint attention.
Pro: E-Course | Article Review + Reflection Qs | Email Idea Subscription + Support (most popular!)
15 continuing ed credits (pre-approved)
For the email idea subscription, you’ll receive one package of session ideas that target attention and/or perception straight to your inbox at the beginning of each month. The ideas will be in PDF format and include step-by-step instructions, as well as all the materials you’ll need to prepare and facilitate the musical experiences. This includes lyrics, MP3s, visuals, musical game templates, or listening guides.
With each month’s idea you’ll also receive a Creativity Worksheet that prompts you to plan out goals, objectives, and musical experiences to work on that attention or perception skill with your own unique clients. You’ll also have email access to ask me any questions regarding the topics and techniques you’re learning in the course.
BONUS: Each package above comes with fun and engaging bonus material that’s perfect for use during teletherapy or in-person sessions: An Uptown Funk Listening Guide for your Bruno Mars fans.
I would love to have you join me in the course! It’s been so much fun to put together and is packed with great information.
As a quick recap, when you enroll this week, 3/22 – 3/26, you’ll get all of the following:
- A discounted rate
- An E-Course jam packed with creative and fun ideas for targeting attention & perception skills
- Three packages to choose from, pre-approved by CBMT for 5 – 15 CMTE credits
- Creativity Worksheets that will prompt and inspire you to create your own musical experiences based on what you’re learning in the course
- Bonus Material: Uptown Funk Listening Guide
Here’s what course participants are saying:
“Would I recommend the course to others? Oh, absolutely. Your voice is easy to listen to, your videos are excellently edited, and your material is succinct and straightforward. For someone with ADD, this was AWESOME and so simple to stay attentive. The edited videos of client interventions seamlessly fit into the instruction videos. It made it so easy to mentally jump from what a therapist can do to use this information and these techniques. Thank you for making it a fun learning experience!”
– Sarah Jarvis, Music Therapy Intern
“I loved the videos! It allowed me to see everything from the the slides being put into action. Which helps me a lot! Would I recommend the course to others? Yes, because it is a great way to learn and understand about the clients you are serving and some great ideas for interventions on how to serve them.”
– Ashley Grampp, Music Therapy Intern
