We understand the value and importance of proper child care, especially to children with special needs. As parents, we want nothing but the best for our child, right? We want to give them the best programs we can find to improve their abilities and develop their learning, social, and communication skills. It is worrisome to see them struggling over things with no proper assistance.
This is one of the main reasons why the Australian Tomatis® Method exists. We want to be there for you and your child – to provide you with the support you both need.
The Australian Tomatis® Method is a solution to your or your child’s unique difficulties and daily challenges; giving you and your child the opportunity to regulate emotions and behaviour as well as to learn and communicate much better.
How Does It Work?
Tomatis® Listening Assessment
The first process will be conducting a Tomatis® Listening Assessment that provides a comprehensive listening check to evaluate the weaknesses and strengths of your or your child’s learning, listening, and communication skills.
Listening Sessions (Passive Phase)
During this phase, an individual will listen at home to a specialised and individualised program that helps stimulate and regulate the brain, ear, body, and emotions. This implies using specific equipment to listen to filtered and gated music with earphones equipped with bone and air conduction to strengthen neurological pathways.
Listening Sessions (Active Phase)
At a certain stage of the Tomatis® program, the Tomatis® professional will include verbal repetition using a microphone that will instantly modify and re-transmit your or your child’s voice within specific parameters of the Tomatis® effect.
There will be regular follow-ups organised between each listening intensive to evaluate progress and changes.
We believe that music is a great form of natural intervention to help the body, mind and soul. It will heal and strengthen the brain which will lead to unlock the potential that our brain and body have.
The Tomatis® listening program tends to improve the pathways related to hearing, speech and language. The voice can only reproduce what the ear can hear and the brain can process. If the ear is conditioned to process good sounds’ quality, the changes will be maintained, and the voice will immediately restore the missing sounds.
The Tomatis® Sound Training Programs
The Australian Tomatis® Method offers programs to help people of all ages with special needs and those who want to improve their natural potential.
As a patient, you or your child can benefit from the Australian Tomatis® Method, which is offered by trained Tomatis® professionals who can assess and offer programs directed to your or your loved one’s needs.
Who Do We Help?
People with issues like auditory processing disorder, speech delay, global developmental delay, sensory integration, autism, learning difficulties, dyslexia, dyspraxia attention and concentration, balance and coordination, depression and anxiety, stress, and a lot more.
The ear is the gateway to the brain and the body through its numerous connections. Thanks to the principles of neuroplasticity, Australian Tomatis® Method will stimulate the neuropathways and will activate brain integration as well as body and emotion regulation.
