What Clinicians Are Saying:
I highly recommend Movies and Music to any clinician working with individuals with mild to severe communication deficits.... I look forward to being able to include this in my future plan of care at my facility. Jane Fitzgerald House, M.S., CCC-SLP
Assessment of the group dynamics indicated increased motivation interest and curiosity which resulted in increased expressive language skills. Group participants stated it was fun and interesting. Lisa Mathers, M.S., CCC-SLP
For those clinicians working with adults with language/cognitive impairments, I highly recommend Movies and Music as an easy way to stimulate language, recall and group interaction in a highly enjoyable format. Lisa Yauch-Cadden, M.S., CCC-SLP
The Movies and Music program has easy to follow instructions and prompts of specified questions designed to highlight specifics in the movie to trigger long-term memory and conversation. The residents were eager to share their thoughts. While enjoying a movie communication, interaction and cognitive stimulation were the targeted result. I would recommend this program to Activity Directors and other professionals whose goal is to provide cognitive stimulation in a fun small group setting. Angela DeMattie, ADC
