Lori K. Yauch, M.A., CCC-SLP, makes use of classic movie musicals to stimulate communication and interaction through shared viewing of films in her book, “Movies and Music: A Guide to Turning the Classic Movie Musical into an Interactive Event” (published by Lulu). Yauch hopes to promote intergenerational interaction between adults and children and is embarking on a marketing campaign to expand her book’s reach.
“Families, teachers, and clinicians need practical tools to interact with loved ones, students, and patients across a continuum of needs,” Yauch says. “This guidebook facilitates interaction with those experiencing cognitive-communication changes due to age or neurologic insult as well as students needing instruction in pragmatic language/social skills.”
The reader will find an overview, trivia and suggested discussion topics for each film. Questions are provided to facilitate exchange and encourage thought-provoking conversation. “Movies and Music” is available for purchase at: https://www.amazon.com/Movies-Music-Turning-Classic-Interactive/dp/1483434508.
Yauch adds, “I hope that users of this guidebook will find enjoyment in the activity, discover shared memories, learn something new and discover universal themes that unite individuals of all ages.”
