 WHAT PARENTS, EDUCATORS AND THERAPISTS SAY ABOUT THE RHYTHM TREE

 

Alysa-Parent-of-a-child-with-autism-small"The Rhythm Tree DVD offers therapy disguised as fun!  I thought music therapy would be a good fit for my 3-year-old son with high-functioning autism since he loves music.  With some research, I stumbled upon The Rhythm Tree website and watched some of Ryan’s videos.  I was intrigued, but worried that my son may not benefit since, not only is every kid different, but I am also not Ryan Judd with all of his experience and musical talent.  I decided since there was a 30 day money back guarantee, I had nothing to lose.  Well, the DVD has exceeded my expectations.  The songs are engaging and catchy.  I often find myself singing parts of them throughout the day, which is great since Ryan encourages parents, teachers, and therapists to change the lyrics to fit different situations.  The best part about these songs and the DVD is that they have a lot of therapy embedded in them.  The included guidebook shows you which therapeutic goals each song covers and suggests strategies to get the most out of each song.  Without the guidebook, I probably wouldn’t have realized each song’s therapeutic potential. This program offers a convenient and fun way to engage my high-functioning autistic son as well as my 2-year-old son.  Both boys ask for “Mr. Ryan” and love playing the instruments and participating in the activities demonstrated by Ryan and five adorable children.  My husband and I can truly say that it’s fun for our whole family in addition to being educational and helping our sons meet developmental goals."

- Alysa F., parent of a child with Autism

 

Tammy-Kitt-Mom-of-Child-with-Williams-syndrome-small"I'm a parent of a 7 year old son with Williams Syndrome and music is the key to opening up his world! One of the wonderful things about this program is you can create your music time with the entire family.  All my kids join in and it makes it such a great time to laugh, sing and dance together while my son is practicing much needed skills.  This music program is easy to implement in our busy schedules and not having to leave your home for a therapy session is priceless."

- Tammy K., parent of a child with Williams syndrome

 

 Anne-Zachry-Occupational-Therapist-Special-Needs-small"Adding music to my therapy sessions has been so beneficial for my students. I love the variety of ways that there are to address developmental goals through music. I've found that if I add music when a child is having difficulty focusing during a session, it has a positive impact on the child's attention span. Every therapist should add this DVD package to their therapy supplies."

- Anne Zachry, PhD, OTR/L

 

Ana-Paula-Speech-Therapist-small"The Rhythm Tree has become my new favorite place for song ideas for my speech/language clients. Ryan's DVD/CD program is practical and fun! Also love the instruments...perfect for little hands!"

- Ana Paula G. Mumy, MS, CCC-SLP

 

 

Darren-Special-Education-Teacher-Autism-Special-Needs"The Rhythm Tree has been a fantastic addition to our early intervention program each week. After hearing two of the songs as background music during our social mealtime, the children have been keen to explore their own rhythm skills with tapping sticks and tambourines as a whole group each session. They enthusiastically explore their individual rhythm then look at each other in excitement as they begin to create and feel part of the group rhythm. It is really rewarding to hear our children humming or singing words from ‘Copy My Beat’ and ‘I Like To Tap’ as they engage independently in other parts of their play based learning throughout the day. We have even made up a poster for one of the songs so the children can independently request it at grouptime. When considering this musical resource, I did ponder how it would be different from other teaching/therapy resource kits. Ryan’s video blogs quickly showed how versatile The Rhythm Tree kit is for engaging our children and being informative to our families of the benefit & value of music for their children. The support materials that accompany the CD enable us to add value and focus to the delivery of our early intervention program. As a teaching team we now feel confident & enthusiastic in our ability to present a quality music component to our program. It complements each child’s individual educational plan. I am keen to recommend The Rhythm Tree to all teachers and families of young children. It’s a fun way to explore and enhance social, language, motor and sensory skills together."

- Darren Parker, Special Education Teacher

 

Stefanie Brown headshotI thought the Rhythm Tree Kit was terrific! I would recommend it to any helping professional working with children with developmental delays or parent of a child with special needs. I think the investment in the kit is completely worth it, especially considering the fact that one-on-one sessions with a private music therapist can cost upwards of $70 per hour. The Rhythm Tree Kit is a comprehensive, accessible, practical, and effective way to help kids work on therapeutic goals."

- Stefanie Brown, MS, School Psychologist

 

 

Dany-Music-Therapist-special-needs-small"It is a very comprehensive package that gave me everything I needed to use the songs effectively. While the DVD gave me a visual perspective of how the songs could be used, the book gave me lead sheets of every song and explained different goals that the song could focus on, depending on the child’s needs. The songs are easy to adapt to both groups and individual sessions, and the kids love them every time!"

- Dany Orozco, MT-BC, NMT, Music Therapist

 

 

Head-Start-Teacher-Autism-Review"From the bottom of my heart - thank you for the Rhythm Tree music therapy kit! I teach pre-k special education students with a variety of disabilities. Music opens a whole new world for these students. We are able to work on attending skills, self-help skills and language development through our musical instruments and Ryan's DVD. My students ask for these by name and they're also a great reinforcer. My little ones work harder than ever before during structured work times in order to sing the songs, dance and play with the instruments. I feel every child should have this unique outlet to express themselves. So again, thank you for this gift and I'll continue singing your praises to parents, teachers and therapists!"

- Rebekah Ozuna, Head Start Teacher in San Antonio, Texas
