The intensive program is suited for many children and their families to overcome:
✓ Language delays
✓ Sensory Processing
✓ Learning Differences
✓ Auditory Processing
✓ Autism and behavioral challenges
✓ ADD, ADHD
✓ Muscle Tone
Listening Therapy (LT) is used when appropriate to “re-train” parts of the brain involved in learning, communicating, and moving. Combining an auditory program with specific visual and balance activities, reflex integration and sensory processing, LT strengthens neurological pathways and improves a child’s ability to learn and to process information.
This intensive program combines sound based therapy with sensory integration occupational therapy to address underlying challenges with a multi sensory approach.
Typically our intensive program is divided into three loops where your child will be seen every day of the week, totaling 10 days of therapy.
Our intensive may combine various aspects of occupational therapy, auditory stimulation, balance, movement and visual motor activities in a one on one setting to address the specific needs highlighted during the evaluation.
By combining multi-sensory intervention, listening, and visual stimulation, we reach faster and more integrated results.
Our intensive therapy programs are fully customized by our therapists with your child's specific needs taken into consideration. We offer programs such as Therapeutic listening, Forebrain, Soundsory, Intensive, Cellfield and Tomatis Infinite which might be incorporated into your intensive dependent on your child's specific needs.
This auditory stimulation program is designed to treat various developmental challenges including:
Memory, focus, and attention
Sensory processing/sensory integration
Auditory processing/listening attention
School based challenges
Communication, engagement and reciprocity
Reading and academic challenges
Social difficulties – withdrawal, isolation
Anxiety & depression
Music, voice, & singing
Foreign language assimilation and learning
The Tomatis Method is a technique of sound sensory stimulation. Sound is transmitted by bone conduction caused by a vibration in the upper part of the cranium, and by aerial conduction passing through the ear. This stimulates the entire inner ear, including the parts that affect both auditory and motor functions.
The Tomatis devices are designed to establish a unique sound perception contrast. This activity is much like a gymnastic exercise for the ear, which, thanks to repeated activity and to the progressive mobilization of the ear, optimizes the transmission of the sensory sound message to the brain leading to amazing progress.
