Therapeutic Listening

Therapeutic Listening

Therapeutic Listening™ utilizes a variety of music and sound methods—including drums, chants, modulated music and SAMONAS sound therapy—to positively impact sensory integration, attention, behavior, postural organization, and speech and language difficulties. Therapeutic Listening™ is an active therapy, involving motivation, intention, and the ability to focus the ear on certain sounds selected for interpretation.

Therapeutic Listening™ is typically done as part of an individual treatment program and may be continued or modified based on the evaluations of a trained professional. Sessions are typically done on a daily basis and will vary in length, frequency, and intensity.

Listening programs are individually designed and developed around several clinical factors: the child's age and past history, his/her sensory profile, clinical observation and baseline data, and behavioral responses to the music. The program can be carried out in our clinic, at home, or in a school environment. Some additional equipment is needed for therapy sessions: a CD player, quality headphones, and optional tune belt to allow for movement.
