Musical stimulation combined with rhythmic stimulation – all parts of a Verbotonal System – has an important role in children’s hearing and speech rehabilitation. Rhythmic stimulation relies mostly on the connection between movement and speech; and the connection between music and speech is predominately the use of musical stimulation.The implementation of rhythmic stimulation requires large body movements (e.g. arm, legs or thorax movements) which influence articulatory movement.Large body movementslike the moving of arms (in a predetermined way) or moving the thorax, otherwise known as “macromotricity”, effect the muscles that create voice, known as “micromotricity”. There is control over limbs because there is conscious control over these muscles, but that level of control over vocal cords is deficient. By implementing this type of stimulation and exciting specific muscles, muscles that can’t normally be controlled, are able to correctly articulate speech sound. During musical stimulation, the connection between music and speech is governed by utilizing their common elements. Certain musical characteristics, such as regular rhythm and a more expressive melody, are more easily adopted by children than irregular rhythm and less expressive melody of the speech. So we use rhythm and melody of the music to correct rhythm and melody of the speech. Other common elements of music and speech, like tempo, intensity and intonation, are used to correct tension and articulation of the speech sound. This paper will show how musical and rhythmic stimulations are organized, how they work within a Verbotonal System, and how to perform them. It will set out some practical examples and also provide practical suggestions on how to organize and perform these kinds of exercises.
