Many of us, children and adults alike, are not "listening" to our fullest potential. In fact, many, many people experience "listening disabilities" or "auditory disabilities" and do not realize it.
These weaknesses or problems in processing sound can adversely affect us in many ways including: communication skills, learning abilities, attention and behavior, energy levels, coordination, relaxation, brain function, and sensory integration. Improving or enhancing our ability to process sound can produce specific benefits.
People of all ages can be trained to process sound more effectively to overcome weaknesses or further develop listening-related abilities.
Over forty years ago, a French ear surgeon, Dr. Alfred Tomatis, made a series of groundbreaking discoveries about the role of the ear and hearing in brain development and organization. We now know that, before birth, the human brain's first sensory experiences are the rich sounds inside the womb. Tomatis showed that our auditory nerve is fundamental to human neurology; it helps to regulate not only balance and spatial orientation, but even vision and our tactile senses. He also discovered that sound is a " nutrient " that can stimulate and feed the brain. One of his greatest innovations was to find new ways to stimulate the ear and brain that can improve hearing, learning, and behavior.
is a sound stimulation auditory therapy program consisting of eight specially
developed Compact Discs (CDs) conveniently bound together with the 9-part
Instructional Guidebook and Listening Journal. Each CD contains four
progressive segments that are 15 minutes each. Re-arranged, specially engineered
classical music and nature sounds comprise the listening content. The
arrangements are treated with "filtering" and "gating" at
gradually increasing levels through the course of the eight CD series.
These techniques are the basis for the therapy process. The basic
listening schedule calls for two 15-minute segments of headphone listening
per day, 5 days a week, for a period of 8 weeks. It can be completed
at home, at school, or in the office.
Improvement in auditory processing is just the beginning ... Incredible care has been taken to use expertise from the best minds in the field to create an auditory therapy program that is easy to do at home, is immensely enjoyable, and also extremely successful in strengthening auditory and related abilities. Here is a program that can benefit anyone, but especially individuals who have difficulties in the areas of auditory perception, processing, and memory.
The Listening Program® has helped individuals make improvements in many areas, including the following:
TLP Extension - Sensory
optional add-on for The Listening Program, the Sensory Integration CD helps
develop the brain's organization of sensory input.
Integration Kids-Is a Special CD added to The Listenting Program
The new SI KIDS 1 CD has more focus on spatial awareness and sound localization. These are elements that stimulate our vestibular systems. Thanks to new technologies and creative elements in recording as well as in post production, we are able to provide stimulation in a totally new way than we have ever been able to do before.
of the main elements that is different from our original Sensory Integration CD
is the incorporation of a new process called Spatial Surround™** (patent
pending). You as the listener can now more clearly determine the spatial
properties of the sound. We add movement to the treatment to create Spatial
Surround Dynamic. This is accomplished by processing the music in a
multi-channel environment that uses five completely independent tracks. This
process allows us to move the sound of each instrument around in a 360 degree

See significant, lasting changes in auditory and visual sequential processing skills and short-term memory. Psychologists and educators call it "sequential processing." It's essential to every mental process, including every level of verbal communication. Better sequential processing enables us to take in more of what there is to see and hear. It determines how quickly and clearly we can grasp concepts with 3 or 5 or 7 components. And it determines how effectively we can express ourselves to others. If sequential processing capacity is limited, it's a little like not having enough RAM in your computer. Some things work just fine. Others work, but s-l-o-w-l-y, or more crudely. And certain things become impossible, resulting in frustration.
A tool for strengthening core mental capacities
Fast, simple, easy-to-use software helps you get powerful results in as little as 10 minutes per day. With Brain Builder, you play up to 7 different 2-3 minute activities every day. Brain Builder automatically sets and adjusts the level of difficulty to help you succeed and challenge you to improve, providing feedback every step of the way.
What kind of intelligence will the 21st Century
require? The rate at which we need to process information in today's high-speed,
information-packed, constantly changing competitive environment can be
overwhelming. Making matters worse, many children and adults must work unusually
hard to do normal tasks, due to processing inefficiencies
The principle behind Brain Builder is exercise. The more you exercise your brain's fundamental processing capacities, the stronger, more efficient and more organized they become. As the pathways of your neural network proliferate and deepen, so too will your ability to absorb and process information quickly and easily.
The result is clearer, quicker thinking, less confusion and better communication. You'll have less need to reread information or hear it repeated, and faster, more accurate responses to real-life or academic problems. Naturally, this means less stress, higher self-esteem, and greater satisfaction and all-around success in life.
Brain Builder's seven Neurodevelopmental exercises are tuned to the precise frequency, intensity, and duration that best stimulates higher brain function, opens the mind, and trains it to learn more effectively.
There are three (3) visual activities, three (3) auditory activities, and one (1) intensity activity. The six core activities all involve seeing or hearing, and then recalling, a series of numbers. This skill is often measured by standardized tests, where it is called "digit span."
In Brain Builder, digit span is not just tested, but exercised. There are six separate activities that, over time, have been shown to build sequential processing capacities in people at all levels. With regular use of Brain Builder, you can gradually increase the number or "span" of digits, or numbers, that you can store and retrieve. This increases your short-term memory capacity.
By doing these exercises, you increase the number
of pieces of information that you can take in sequentially, hold, process, and
recall. Better memory is just the first level of benefit you will notice.
Building digit span means increasing the number of abstractions you can keep in
mind when understanding and processing language, and the ability to think
sequentially in any life situation. If you can grasp the relationship of more
factors that are interacting in a given situation you may be able to solve
problems successfully that would otherwise be too complex to comprehend.
Special Note: Brain Builder is for adults and
children as young as four (4) with guidance
