Discover how songs and rhythmic chants can support necessary skills inherent in social development, including joint attention, turn-taking, and formulating greetings and appropriate responses. These skills are particularly challenging for children with disabilities whose social development may be delayed. In this edWebinar, Dr. Carol Ann Blank highlighted ways to approach making music with young children in the inclusion classroom to support development of social skills not only in children with disabilities, but in any child who is delayed in social skill development. Viewers will also be introduced to relevant social development theories as they apply to children.
