Therapeutic Listening

Therapeutic Listening is an evidence-based auditory intervention intended to support individuals who experience challenges with sensory processing dysfunction, listening, attention, and communication.

Since the auditory system has connections to many parts of the brain, sound is a powerful way to access the nervous system and affect changes at all levels.  The music in Therapeutic Listening albums gives the listener unique and precisely controlled sensory information.  The music is electronically modified to highlight the parts of the sound spectrum that naturally trigger attention and activate body movement. In addition to the electronic modifications, Therapeutic Listening capitalizes on the organized rhythmical sound patterns inherent in music to trigger the self-organizing capacities of the nervous system.

Therapists, teachers and parents report seeing a variety of results including:

  • Increased Focus and Attention
  • Better Moods
  • Improved Handwriting
  • Greater Tolerance to Noise
  • Fewer Tantrums
  • Less Anxiety
  • Improved Communication Skills

The Therapeutic Listening program requires the use of specialized equipment such as headphones, and modulated music.  The music can be accessed from music chips, CDs or the Therapeutic Listening App.   Following an assessment with a TL certified therapist, the equipment and recommended music can be purchased through vital links.
