So I became fed up with OT. She was disorganized and one time I watched the clock. We started 15 minutes late, then she made a 7 minutes personal call, then she took 9 minutes picking out a new CD for my DS. Then when you add the time to set up the food table & then write notes for the week she was spending 15 minutes one-on-one time with my DS. With the amount of money and time invested I was becoming too bitter to continue.


This was a few weeks ago. Now I find it hard to believe by doing one activity with my DS a week was the winning ticket. Although, since quitting he does seem to be losing focus & attention span. I would believe it had more to do with the Listening program.


Is this only provided through a therapist or does anybody know of a way to do this from home w/o a therapist? The above therapist was the only one my insurance covered for children sensory issues.


Thanks

The Listening Program and Therapeutic Listening are two different listening programs based on the same method (Tomatis).

I cannot seem to find where you can purchase as a parent. I can only find where to find a provider or to become a provider, but little info is given.


Hmmm, but looking at this link you provided, I hadn't found this one one

Actually, this program is different than just listening to music at home. This program uses psychoacoustically modified music. More information can be found here.... http://www.thelisteningprogram.com/How_TLP_Works_Ear_Brain_Connection.asp

I have no ideas as we have never done the listening program I will tell ya one thing though I'm sure u can put together a similar program all on ur own. To be honest we just listen to lots of music round here and when Leanna doesn't like something she tells us :)

I believe you can buy the Listening Program for $600. I have several students who use it at home. Tamie
