Therapeutic Listening Program?

Hi everyone, hope your summer is going great so far!

Anyone try a Therapeutic Listening Program for your child? If so, what did you think? Did it "work"?

The OT place my son has been going to suggested it. I'm trying to do the research before I decide. So you all are part of my research!

Thanks for any thoughts.

Hi, yes I will keep you posted. I'm willing to give it a try, but I still need to talk to my husband. It costs $200, and appears insurance doesn't cover it. He's been listening to one CD at home for the past week. The OT suggested having him listen to it for a few days, then have him go try riding his bike (a big anxiety for him). We had him listen to it yesterday, then we zoomed down to the school and had him ride where we didn't have to worry about cars. He did great and actually said it was easy and that he wanted to do it again. Something he's never said before. Not sure if it was the music, I can't really imagine how it works, but I'll take it at this point.

Will keep you posted!

Thanks,
Molly

I am hoping my son's OT does the listening program with Gabe. Gabe has processing disorder and the listening program an help with that.

If you do start the program could you keep us posted?

I believe this is the same as what my sons OT tried.
