Tomatis Listening Therapy
Tomatis Therapy is a transformative auditory training therapy designed specifically for children, adults and seniors. Developed by French otolaryngologist and researcher Dr. Alfred A. Tomatis, this renowned method has been proven effective in enhancing attention skills and communication abilities. At TDCC, we leverage the power of the ear as a sensory integrator to help children overcome challenges and reach their full potential.
The Power of the Ear in Tomatis Therapy
The human ear is an incredible sensory organ, responsible for stimulating the brain and facilitating brain plasticity. Over 80% of the stimulation received by our brain originates from the ear, underscoring its profound influence on our sensory experience. Through Tomatis therapy, we tap into this power, engaging with various applications that foster personal development and address difficulties and disorders.
How Tomatis Therapy Works for Children, Adults and Seniors
During Tomatis therapy sessions at TDCC, clients participate in auditory exercises using the Electronic Ear, a specialized device that delivers music with filtered sound frequencies. By transmitting these altered frequencies through the skull bones to the ear, the therapy stimulates and trains the ear to process sounds and pitch changes more effectively. This process enhances sensory processing, language development, and communication skills, ultimately improving social interaction.
