What's in the Big Yellow Bag?

developing language through musical play


The Yellow Bag Method(TM) was developed after Mary Lawrence was presented with the challenge of organizing and implementing highly engaging, language-rich, hands-on music strategies at a fast pace to preschoolers with autism. The solution was a large yellow laundry bag (later coined the Big Yellow Bag) filled with containers. Each container represented a highly reinforcing music strategy and was filled with instruments, finger puppets or toys! 


During this e-course, Patina and Mary will describe the Yellow Bag Method and will demonstrate 20 highly engaging, language and fine motor rich sensory strategies! In addition to the training videos, this course includes a complete song book of the 20 songs shared during the course.
