Animation Therapy videos to improve narrative in older children with language impairment

Readers of Speech & Language Therapy in Practice will be interested to see these short videos accompanying an article about Animation Therapy in the Winter 11 issue. 

Animation Therapy is a hybrid of skill based and naturalistic activities aimed at improving narrative in older children with language impairment. Speech and language therapist Ravit Cohen-Mimran developed the approach over the past two years. In the Winter 11 issue she describes the rationale, stages, and its use with 11 year old 'Ben'.

The first video shows Ben's traffic jam animation, while the second is by another child. Ravit plans to submit a research proposal to get funding for a larger study with more participants.
