THERAPEUTIC LISTENING (TL)®

Course Objectives

By listening to therapeutic music and cooperating with sensory integration activities, the child will improve concentration, organizational behavior, self-regulation, posture control, bilateral coordination, physical ability, fine movement control, oral movement and sound composition, social interaction skills and communication, and visual action integration.

DETAILS

In addition to the tactile, vestibular and proprioceptive neurosystems, the auditory neurosystem is also an important part of sensory integration in children. Listening is the process by which the brain perceives, organizes and integrates external sounds and other sensory information to help us regulate ourselves and develop adaptive behaviors.

Therapeutic listening is a set of auditory therapy programs developed by American occupational therapist Sheila Frick. It uses different types of music with different frequency adjustment methods and different complexities to allow children to perform sensory integration therapy according to their individual conditions and needs. Therapeutic listening emphasizes combining auditory therapy with vestibular and proprioception, core muscle groups, and breathing activities for focus and stability. Listening to therapeutic music for 30 minutes twice a day, combined with sensory package activities, can accelerate the progress of children in the following functions:

  • attention
  • organized, methodical behavior
  • Self-regulation, emotional response
  • Posture control
  • Bilateral movement coordination
  • Use physical ability and coordination of large and small muscles
  • sensory regulation
  • Oral Movement and Articulation
  • Social interaction skills and communication skills
  • visual action integration

"Quickshifts®" is another set of auditory therapy tools developed by occupational therapists. It adjusts the left and right channels of music to different frequencies, prompting the brain to adjust the brainwaves back to a relaxed and stable state when combining the auditory information from the left and right sides. Alpha waves. Quickshifts are more convenient to use than therapeutic listening and can be heard anytime, anywhere, regardless of age or condition. Used in conjunction with sensory integration therapy, listening to Quickshifts can accelerate your child's progress in:

  • sensory regulatioon
  • attention
  • Spatial perception of the surrounding environment
  • Bilateral movement coordination
