Socially Smart:Teaching Social Skills Through Scripts and Songs

Debbie Dacus (co-author of LTM, Volume 1) and Christie Zapotek Harmon, MS, CCC-SLP, (a Licensed Speech-Language Pathologist) have created this book of songs and social scripts for students with autism and Asperger's Syndrome, as well as any others who need help with social situations. Each social script is paired with a song which will motivate the students and help them remember the concepts. Subjects addressed include perseveration, introducing oneself, and staying on topic.

Playing Piano Without Notes

This revolutionary approach to piano playing will free you from printed music, reacquaint you with the essence of music theory, and provide you with a creative spark for song and music writing. Starting with a circle of chords, you will begin to hear familiar patterns from your favorite music as you play the progressions without reading a single note of music. Written by Joe Pinson, MT-BC, a long-time clinician and musician, this book will change the way you approach piano playing as a part of therapy and teaching.
