I recently had the pleasure of working with the wonderful Maryland Association for Music Therapy (MAMT) to create a revamped website for their organization.
Enter the site: http://marylandmusictherapy.org
*Designed pages with easy-to-access information/events/brochures/slideshows for their association, as well as their state task force committee
*A members-only password-protected access site
*A membership "shop" page
*A "find a music therapist in Maryland" searchable database
A huge thanks to the MAMT executive board for helping make this such a fun, smooth process!

Language/Semantics: Given "Wh" questions about a recent personal experience, the student will increase his semantic skills by correctly answering with 75% accuracy given no more than 2 visual or verbal cues.
Language/Syntax: Producing simple phrases/sentences of 3-7 words with 2 or less verbal or visual cues.
This song is used to help my students answer "where" questions, and serve as a model for the use of 4-5 word full and complete sentences/answers. It was originally written by a music therapy student several years ago and shared/passed along within my department (unfortunately, I don't know who this student was, as they had been long gone by the time I began working there...
