The topic of this graduate thesis is to present the ways inrehabilitationof vowels, using gross motoric movement according to the Verbotonal method. The aim of this thesis is to: firstly, realize how much movement is essential in everyday activities, but also in the rehabilitation of various difficulties and illnesses, to realize that movement plays a key role in better development of sensations, speech and personality, to make every person create his own unique movements and to emphasize the importance of its influence, inadequate usability. To realize that we communicate with the rest of the world through movement, and that most of the time, we are not aware of the relationship between movement, space, speech, and other senses closely related. Movement is one of the basic needs of the human being, therefore every individual should be encouraged to move from the earliest age life. Modern life often imposespattern of behaviour, so we find ourselves in situation where we ignore the importance of movement and speech. Through the graduate thesis are mentioned rhythmic stimulation, motion stimulation in SUVAG, but in many other areas the movement is also very significant, such as for example in learning and learning new language. The result of this graduate thesis is a suggestionof ways in rehabilitation through various activities, using short songs to achieve the best results in speech development or correction. As a material five vowels are shown in the Croatian vowel system in different coarticulation positions. The thesisinvokes discovery of one's own individual movements and encourages us to be more conscious of something that is very important and that we often ignore.
