  • This video teaches you two hello songs that are easy to learn and remember. 
  • You can use these songs with children and adolescents with special needs to help them practice eye contact and greetings in a fun and musical way!
  • Remember to use big dramatic pauses in these songs in order to prompt a child to use a greeting.
  • Using a slap-clap pattern with the first hello song is a great way for non-musicians to add an engaging rhythmic element to this song.

    Ryan,
    Thanks for sharing your talent! I really like the way you demonstrated a couple of different ways to use the song based on age as well as with or without a guitar!
