WE USE SOUND AS NEUROSTIMULATION TO IMPROVE

Child in the process of listening training
  • AUDITORY PROCESSING DISORDER (APD) 
  • LEARNING DISABILITY (LD)
  • ADHD 
  • AUTISTIC SPECTRUM DISORDER (ASD) 
  • GLOBAL DEVELOPMENTAL DELAY OR SENSORY PROCESSING DISORDER
  • VOICE QUALITY (SPEECH & SINGING)
  • SECOND LANGUAGE ACQUISITION


Difficulty to listen is a common factor in all these issues.

Our program of sound stimulation (modified music and voice) “starts the ball rolling” in the brain - allowing development of the listening function to take shape. Improved listening has a positive impact on self-regulation, focus, learning, social adjustment and quality of life.

Paul was a French 18-year-old who struggled with reading and writing and had dropped out of school before receiving help from Dr. Alfred Tomatis and his sound stimulation program. Ten years later, he was fluent in 3 languages and had already worked in 3 continents when he arrived in Toronto to start The Listening Centre, bringing to others the remarkable changes he had experienced himself!
