What is Listening Therapy?
The Listening Therapy is a clinically-proven approach which gently trains the auditory system to accurately process sound. It is a Music-Based Auditory Stimulation method that trains the brain to improve the auditory skills needed to effectively listen, learn and communicate. It enhances active listening. It consists of an extensive series of high quality audio sounds integrated with acoustic music; primarily classical with innovative sound processing techniques that exercises the brain and auditory pathways. When auditory perception is distorted—whether through illness, injury, developmental or other challenges—auditory processing problems can lead to academic, emotional, cognitive and social challenges, including problems with the following:
- Attention and concentration
- Speech and language
- Social Skills
- Sensory Integration
- Self Regulation
- Physical balance and coordination
- Vocal performance and musical ability
Our Auditory programs show dramatic results with individuals of all ages with learning disabilities, dyslexia, autistic spectrum disorders, cerebral palsy, developmental disorders, various speech, language, comprehension challenges, and Central Auditory Processing Disorder. Listening Therapy is designed to address these zones, systematically providing auditory stimulation that, customized for listeners, can help improve their ability to function in a number of ways.
|Sensory Integration (SI)Zone 10-750 HzLow-Pass Filter (LPF)(Disc 3 & 4)||Speech and Language (SL)Zone 2500/750-3,000/4,000 HzBand-Pass Filter (BPF)(Disc 5 & 6)||High Spectrum (HS)Zone 33,000/4,000-20,000+ HzHigh-Pass Filter (HPF)(Disc 7 & 8)|
|Full Spectrum (FS)Zone 1, 2, 30-20,000+ HzNo Filters|
The Listening Therapy's patent-pending ABC Modular Designâ„¢ takes the program a step farther, enabling listeners to effectively exercise the auditory processing system, providing "warm-up," "workout" and "cool-down" phases. The science of physical training (and practical application) shows that certain approaches are most effective, such as a gradual warm-up for muscle groups, followed by weight-resistance training, concluded by cool-down stretching. Following a similar pattern, LISTENING THERAPY music is divided into 15-minute modules. Within these modules, the first phase, "A," relaxes the listener and prepares the auditory processing system for the more intensive stimulation of the "B" phase. The listener is then returned to a relaxed state during the final "C" phase.
Who can benefit?
Anyone can benefit from improved listening function, auditory processing, communication skills, attention, auditory memory and also relief from "toxic noise". The Listening Therapy will benefit children as young as 2 years old for
- The typically developing child
- Children experiencing listening, sensory and motor, communication, attention and auditory processing difficulties
- Those interested in improved communication, reading, speaking skills, musical ability, creativity and well being
