Tuesday we tried something with J-Man’s OT called “Therapeutic Listening” (officially, it’s a trademarked term by somebody). You may have come across this under terms like ‘auditory therapy’, ‘auditory training’, ‘listening therapy’, and a host of other terms. I don’t understand how all this works very well at all, and there are different approaches to make things more complicated in learning about it. Here are some sites that give you an overview. I’d suggest reading them in this order: Vital Links (about Therapeutic Listening ®), Tomatis, Berard AIT, and Samonas (whose website layout is a mess, but that’s another matter).
From what I gather, the above methods vary some from one to the other. The following describes what we did for Therapeutic Listening on Tuesday. Any similarities between my description and the actual science and technical bases for any of these methods may be pure luck on my part. Like I said, this is new to me. It’s the end result that left me astonished, and plenty fascinated to learn more about this.
