Beat It

Level: Easy

Length: 5 minutes +

Overview: Non-verbal communication using rhythmic sounds

Materials: Table top, drum or percussive instrument if available.

How: Sit facing each other with access to a table top or drum. Person 1 makes a sound. Maintaining eye contact person 2 mimics that sound… and so on. If the person makes vocal sounds mimic this as well. This is very powerful when communicating with a person who does not use speech.
