ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Genevieve Jereb, OTR, is an Australian-born pediatric occupational therapist who has lectured on sensory processing disorders, both nationally and internationally. Most recognized as a childrens’ singer and songwriter, Genevieve uses the principles of sensory processing theory to create music, songs and rhythmic activities for children with attention, motor and regulation difficulties.

Favorite Kids\' Rhythms for Calming, Cool Downs and Bedtime Routines

Cool Bananas was created to provide children with a selection of strong, regulated rhythms to support a state of calm, organization and regulation in their nervous systems. Enchanting favorite childrens\' songs sung at 50 to 70 beats per minute support the dysregulated child as background music during therapy, classroom and home activities (e.g., table top time, play time, bath time, car rides).

Don Campbell, in his book, Rhythms of Learning, discusses the importance of using rhythms of 50 to 70 beats per minute: “The pulse in these slow movements is similar to the rhythm of the human heartbeat and has been found to slow body functions...”

Soothing rhythms, songs and meditative sounds are also included on this CD to support bedtime routines, cool downs and quieter therapies.

The physical CD includes a 8-page full color booklet with more info about the science behind these calming songs.

“These songs support the disregulated child during playtime, bath time, car rides, quieter therapies, and bedtime. No actions accompany these songs. Because these songs are sung at a slower tempo, children with speech difficulties will find these songs easier to sing along with. Ms. Jereb has done another wonderful job here singing and orchestrating these perennial favorites. ...no musical experience is necessary to use these toe-tapping, hand clapping songs which are well performed by Jereb and her musicians. These CDs saved the day this summer for our two children with autism on our lengthy road trip. The only requirement for using these CD’s is to press \'play\' and have fun.” -- Maureen Bennie, Autism Awareness Centre

Note -- the album\'s songs are grouped and sequenced to provide a complete experience for the child.

Tracks 1 through 10 are \"Enchanting favorite children\'s songs sung at 50 to 70 bpm to support the dysregulated child during play time, bath time,
car rides and other unstructured interval.\" 11-13 are \"Instrumental rhythms played at 50 to 70 bpm to support a child during quiet times or calming/cool down activities.\" The disc finishes with tracks 14-19: \"Soothing rhythms, songs and meditative sounds to be used for bedtime routines or to support quieter therapies.\"
