Here's an instrument playing social story. It's presented in Word - change my name to yours in the story. I'm still searching for a melody to go with this idea, but the social story may need to change a bit to make it work. Enjoy!
File Folder Kits or Completed File Folders with Therapeutic Music Experience Prompts
Offered in two versions, these file folder formats for TME visual aids provide clients with visually stimulating supplements to the therapeutic music experience presented by the therapist. Each file folder comes with accompanying TME idea sheets for use with clients.
A file folder kit is available via electronic download. The kit includes all image files as well as a list of materials and instructions for assembly. In addition, the kit includes TME plans.
The other format, a completed file folder, is available for shipping anywhere in the United States. (Contact us if you are interested but live outside the US. Additional shipping costs will apply.) The completed file folder will arrive with all materials included, laminated, and with storage for all pieces included on the file folder itself. This file folder version also includes TME plans for use with clients.
