Join the Fun – A Guest Post by Lori Yauch MA CCCSLP


Join the Fun!


This month the Road to Reminiscence takes another detour, this time to Illinois for The American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA) Annual Convention.

We packed are our bags, boxes and Guidebooks to the Classic Movie Musical and heading to Chicago. November 13th – 16th.

Come visit us at McCormick Place for 3 days of fun and information as we share Booth #2210 with our friends from Clinical Colleagues Confidential.

The Movies and Music Guidebook will teach you how to utilize 12 classic movie musicals to promote communication and engagement in your clients.

Turn watching a movie into a great interactive event that will have your clients engaged, laughing, talking, reminiscing and dancing in their seats. Foster increased communication, conversation and long-term memory.

If you’re thinking…I haven’t the time to prep such an activity! Movies and Music has prepared all 12 activities for you! Just gather your residents in front of the DVD player, pop in the DVD, grab your guide and go! Nothing is simpler or more fun!

“This is one of the simplest and most entertaining activities I have ever done. I highly recommend it to clinicians working with adults/geriatrics, regardless of the setting. You will not be disappointed”.
Lisa C, M.S., CCC-SLP, New Bedford, MA

At MassCap in October, an activity specialist was heard to say, “I don’t show movies to my residents because they fall asleep”. After visiting Movies and Music and discovering that movies could be source of engagement and that the Guidebook could provide an entire year of programming for 3 dollars/ month she became a convert!

Become a Convert! Visit Booth 2210 and join the fun!
