A friend who is a talented musician said to us, “always sing and use music as it is a way of communicating, recognising sounds and words etc. and most importantly connecting with each other. Remember rhythm and music are the foundations to the development of language.” Funnily enough, we have a song we sing to Coraline from her speech therapist, to be sung twice a day whilst also touching her face in directed steps, which is to normalise sensation and “warm up” for speech.
