Therapeutic listening is an approach that recognises that listening goes well beyond the ears and is a function of the brain .

The way we listen affects the way we behave , and so to that end therapeutic listening uses sound training together with sensory integrative techniques that don’t just stimulate the auditory system but also help rewire those parts of the brain that enable us to hear . What’s more it can help people who exhibit a myriad of behaviour types .

Therapeutic listening uses electronically modified music with rhythmic sound patterns in order to stimulate and trigger the self organising capacities of the nervous system , and as such , a person’s progression through the program will depend on how they respond at any particular point  . In other words , its adapted to a person’s specific needs.    We did the home based program and did it twice a day  while doing a floor time activity or while doing a physical activity . Our experience with therapeutic listening  showed improvements in many areas  such as : *better hand-eye coordination which resulted in better hand writing , better coordinated movements , better concentration , less anxiety as well as better articulation .
