First, Then: Autism Sing-Along! Social Songs (Volume 2)

9781512379495: First, Then: Autism Sing-Along! Social Songs (Volume 2)

First, Then is one of the Lyrics & More songbooks for Autism Sing-Along! Social Songs. With the songbook, children can learn to track the lyrics in icons and words as they listen. Photos add additional meaning. Put together, the songs and books comprise a rich learning experience that encourages repetition and skill-building.

We teach 'first-then' as a way to use kids' favorite activities to help them to learn other things. "First work, then music." But a number of 'first-then' sequences are unchanging and natural in daily life: "First night then morning." "First socks, then shoes." Here is a happy take on 'First, then,' with an open instrumental verse to talk about another first-then.

iSimilar to social stories, Autism Sing-Along! Social Songs are designed to help children learn to navigate through activities of everyday life with more comfort, more skill and less anxiety. They encourage participation, and are pitched appropriately for young voices, should they begin to sing along.

Autism Sing-Along! Social Songs are available on iTunes, Amazon MP3, Google Play, and other music outlets. CD available on
