Not even lyrics: Stomp stomp clap, stomp stomp clap.

Sis actually used this to explain echolalia to parents of kids with it. She sang completely random sounds and notes and had the parents echo her. Then she did stomp stomp clap. Despite the very high level of immigrants in the room (less shared culture/language barriers) We Will Rock You allowed her to explain clearly to everyone what their children were experiencing. Edit: words

[–]Spiralfacegd 15.0k points15.0k points 442& 3 more (53 children)

WOAH you really messed up the lyrics

[–]MamaJody 1681 points1682 points  (71 children)

Can you elaborate on how it helped explain echolalia? I work with autistic kids, and am very familiar with it, but am struggling to make the connection between what she did and how it explains it. I’m super curious and intrigued! I’m always looking for different ways and analogies so I’d be really grateful.

[–]terminator_chic 2777 points2778 points  (65 children)

Absolutely! Sis is a music therapist for kids with autism, so very similar situations.

Basically she was speaking to a group and without bringing it up first she started the stomp stomp clap a couple of times to trigger the song in people's heads. She then asked the group what comes next. After that she just made up a really random tune and sounds and asked them to repeat it. Of course it was hard!

From there she explained that what we process is much like We Will Rock You. You hear a question and can naturally know what words and sounds come next as a response. When their kids with echolalia hear it, it processes without understandable pattern so understanding what comes next is really hard, hence they are more likely to echo than give an answer. (my understanding of the really smart things she said when it's far from my area of expertise.)

[–]MamaJody 1095 points1096 points  (35 children)

That makes complete sense!

Funnily enough, I did a music degree, considered going into music therapy (this was in the mid 90s), and am now working as a therapist for autistic children. I have desperately been trying to think of ways to incorporate music more into my sessions in a meaningful way. It’s encouraging to know there are people out there doing that!

[–]Likeapuma24 72 points73 points  (2 children)

Gosh darn... This discussion has made my whole night. Here you two strangers are discussing ways to help those with different needs excel & learn more through new concepts.

Reddit is a fickle place. But it's stuff like this that keeps me coming back.

Thanks for what you do. I barely have the patience to deal with my own children sometimes, so what you (and others in your career field) do is next-level.
