What others say about Imitation Exploration

So catchy! My son was singing along right away

– Rachel Thompson, parent

These songs are like a miracle. They are great for kids who are just learning to imitate single words and phrases but are also catchy and fun for typically developing kids as well. You can tell a speech pathologist created these songs, because they combine adults and kids together taking verbal turns with enough time for the children to formulate a response. They also include tons of repetition so that children have many opportunities to practice speech. To top it off, this set includes visuals that you can print out to illustrate each song. Great find! Buy this for your own kids or for your use in therapy and you will be back for more. This author gets what it takes to get kids talking.

Great for early talkers! I am a Speech/Language Pathologist working with children ages birth to 3 years. I use this with my families and children and they love it. The songs contain early sounds and easy repetition that children can easily imitate. The music is fun and upbeat, easily engaging children. I would absolutely recommend this product!

My students love the songs and DVDs


I love all the cd’s and DVD’s. I am an SLP and use these songs to help my students with communication disorders. They love the songs. Great way to start my lessons. Absolutely wonderful company!!! I would give 6 starts if I could. I had a question about an order and the creator and owner reached out quickly and helped me!! More than impressed.

– Katherine Golinveaux, Speech-Language Pathologist


The songs on these CDs are like magic. When children hear them they immediately attend and engage with me. The words are simple for kids to say and repeat ( see Baby Blowing Bubbles ). The visuals make them even more attractive but kids love just the songs too. The tunes are easy for a non-singer like me to sing along with. When I am working with a little one and want their attention these CDs are my go to materials. It’s easy to find a song for a particular therapy goal.

– Elizabeth Straka, Speech-Language Pathologist


So helpful! My son has Down Syndrome and Apraxia, and he loves the songs and it seems to be really helping! Exactly what we need to motivate him!

– Heidi W, parent


A must-have! These songs and visuals are a must for working with kids with apraxia of speech, in particular. (They’re also super for a plain ol’ speech delay.) Add a little video modeling, an echo mic for auditory feedback, a mirror for visual feedback, some tactile & kinesthetic cues (along the lines of the PROMPT method), a swing for vestibular stimulation (if you can) and you’ve got a recipe for success! I’ve used these brilliant materials for over a decade. I’ve had so many little ones (with autism, seizure disorder, or straight up CAS) go from being mute to being a motor mouth. I usually start with the BMW chant (lip consonants + vowels); it’s borderline inane, but it WORKS. Thank you, Rachel, for sharing your creative talents!

    great songs. Helped my autistic son to mimic and make the sounds in the songs. Thank you.

    • Rachel Arntson

      Hello from Rachel at Talk It Rock It. Thank you so much for your review on our website about Imitation Exploration. I wrote many of these songs specifically for children with autism. I worked in early intervention for over 25 years, and wanted songs that were simple enough for my students to imitate. I also believe strongly in using visuals with songs to promote comprehension of the words they are singing. Thank you again. Please share with others and let them know about a coupon code, TIRI-20, to get 20% off our individual song and movie sets.
