We speech therapists have been using sign language with infants and toddlers for years. We are especially likely to do this if a child's speech lags behind his desire to communicate. When this happens, children are prone to frustration because they have much more to express than they are able to say. Sign language gives them a way to communicate even if they don't yet have verbal words, and it helps the language part of their brain keep developing while we work to get the speech part to catch up. Because sign language carries these advantages, we often recommend the use of sign language with children who are late talkers, those who are having significant difficulty with speech--such as those with apraxia of speech--or those who have a diagnosis such as Down Syndrome, where speech is often later developing.
The first feeling that in infants are detected can understand, joy, anger, sadness and fear. Later, the children begin to a sense of self-respect, more complex emotions like shyness, surprise, joy, embarrassment, shame, debt, pride, develop and empathy. Pupils and students are still learning, emotions in order to understand why they occur and how to deal with them properly to identify. Children develop, things that their emotional reactions to change, to cause, such as the strategies that you use to manage.

Our motor systems naturally entrain, or match, to a rhythmic beat. When a musical input enters our central nervous system through the auditory nerve, most of the input goes to the brain for processing. But some of it heads straight to motor nerves in our spinal cord. This allows our muscles to move to the rhythm without our having to think about it or “try.” It’s how we dance to music, tap our foot to a rhythm, and walk in time to a beat. This is also why music therapists can help a person who’s had a stroke re-learn how to walk and develop strength and endurance in their upper bodies.
The reason why music causes connections is because of how people can easily relate to it as one. The writer Lea Winerman from the American Psychology Association tells about, “An autistic teenager learns to communicate with other people by playing the drums as part of a group.” (“American Psychology Association”) This teenager must have really struggled a lot knowing that he/she could not be able to communicate with other people and have fun with them. That is why she found the drums that easily helped her connect with other people. ”If one thinks that music can arouse such emotions as well, the following problem is a problem about music, too”(Naar).Hichem Naar is telling a person can get emotions which turn into passions for music and that

It has been proven as a viable and beneficial way of treating and over time healing young children. One of the many advantages of participating in art therapy is “Art created within the context of a therapeutic relationship is intended to help young clients not only to engage in self-exploration, it also involves purposeful meaning-making through specific art making” (Malchiodi). It can sometimes be very difficult for a child to articulate their opinions but with the aid of art therapy they have the tools and guidance to express themselves in the way that they want to. Even in children with illnesses and disorders such as ADHD and autism art therapy has been proven to be beneficial both mentally and scholastically. It is described in the article How Art Therapy Tames Impulsivity, Distractibility, and Anxiety that “Art therapy uses the processes of drawing, painting, and sculpting to help children address emotional problems, develop interpersonal skills, manage behavior, reduce stress, and increase self-awareness” (Nelson).
Research shows that children use more self regulatory speech due to the need to solve difﬁcult problems i.e the higher the level of difﬁculty, the increased incidence of private speech. This also shows the importance of using private speech in that, those who use private speech to talk themselves through difﬁcult tasks were able to carry out their tasks more successfully than those who did not use it. (Gouws, 2015 :56) Defence mechanisms Are unconscious psychological painkillers that protect our minds from harmful, threatening thoughts and impulses.

Kidi is a drum, which is about two feet tall and played with wooden sticks. Kidi responds to calls from the lead drummer. This is known as a dialogue.
Many of the younger children had a more difficult time understanding the process of the hearing screening and what was needed of them. After a while myself and my classmates began to come up with different ideas to help them to understand so that the process could go by faster. We came up with the idea to practice with the children and for those who were afraid to put the headphones on, we would but them on ourselves so that they could see that it was okay and not going to hurt them. At the School for the Deaf and Blind I got the opportunity to help with gathering students to get their heights and weights. It was interesting to interact with them because I do not know sign language.
