Therapeutic Listening is a comprehensive program that stimulates the auditory system. Beyond more than the ears, listening is a whole body experience.
Listening connects one to their environment and can impact their level of attention, focus, arousal, and awareness. When listening, one detects the input, organizes, and integrates the sound, in order to make sense of the information one is receiving. Listening is important from both aspects of social and survival skills.
The Therapeutic Listening Program is an intervention tool that incorporates the use of sound and its impacts on sub-cortical (sensorimotor) processing. This program was built using both developmental and sensory integration perspectives. Music provided through this sound-based program, gives the listener controlled sensory input, in order to improve organization of behavior, attention, sensory modulation, motor planning, and academic success. This program is a valuable tool that can be implemented both during and outside of the child’s therapy sessions as a home program.
While Therapeutic Listening is designed for children with attention deficits, auditory sensitivities/defensiveness, difficulties filtering auditory input, motor coordination challenges, and other sensory processing differences, it can be beneficial an even wider range of children and even adults.
