Therapeutic Listening is a sound-based approach that involves much more than just the ears. Like other sensory systems, the auditory system does not work in isolation. Neurologically it is connected to all levels of brain function and as a result it has an influence on our attention and concentration ability as well as our general behaviour.
Therapeutic Listening is a specific sound-based intervention that is embedded in a developmental and sensory integration perspective. The music in Therapeutic Listening gives the listener unique and precisely controlled sensory information. The music is electronically modified to highlight the parts of the sound spectrum that naturally capture attention and activate body movement, synchronising it with the environment. Therapeutic Listening uses electronic modifications, along with the organised, rhythmical sound patterns inherent in music, to trigger the self-organising capacities of the nervous system.
Therapeutic Listening is designed to help children and adolescents with:
- Attention and Concentration
- Task Focus
- Difficulty filtering auditory information in busy environments
- Over-sensitivity to auditory input impacting on everyday function
