Melodic Based Communication Therapy (M.B.C.T.) Level 1 is an evidence based intervention designed by a speech language pathologist to help caregivers and therapists assist nonverbal and low verbal children (less than 10 words) with autism learn to speak. While designed for children with autism, the application may also be used to help young preverbal children learn new words. The application will assist in teaching children to say single words that many children learn first using research based melodies. The application contains 25 melodies, 25 colorful photos, a link to research on M.B.C.T., an outline of the steps involved in the process, and a method for tracking progress.
