Sound Therapy for Dyslexia
Dyslexia, meaning "reading difficulty" was originally called "word blindness" and thought to be a visual problem, however more recent studies point to language and auditory problems as the fundamental cause. Listening is the most basic skill required for verbal communication and a weakness in listening ability may hinder the development of a strong language base.
Consequently, the child, teenager or adult usually encounters problems when it comes time to approach the more complex linguistic tasks of reading and writing. If the sounds of speech have not been accurately heard, they cannot be accurately conveyed by symbols.
How The Sound Therapy Listening Program Can Help
The balance between the two hemispheres of the brain is of fundamental importance in overcoming dyslexia which what the Sound Therapy Listening Program is designed to do.
Both hemispheres play a role in processing language, however the roles they play are different. The eye must combine with the power and the quality of the ear to make sense of the written sounds. This co-ordination happens easily when the left hemisphere deals primarily with audition and the right hemisphere deals primarily with vision, but in dyslexia, the route which allows for phonic analysis has often been damaged.
"Sound Therapy can help restore the functioning of this route and reduce the cause of the problem. Dr Alfred Tomatis says "We read with our ears ... the ear is the organ of language, the pathway to language assimilation, the key that controls it, the receptor regulating its flow."
The Sound Therapy Listening Program can help stimulate and exercise the ear, encouraging it to receive and interpret sound in an efficient manner. Music and specific beats and tones are a highly organised series of sounds that the ear has to analyse. Therefore, listening to music combined with sound therapy is an excellent way for a child to learn how to perceive sounds in an organised fashion, or in other words, to learn how to listen.

The Added Benefits Of Confidence And Self Esteem
Children on the Autistic Spectrum often have feelings of inferiority after repeated failure. It feels unfair that they must try many times harder than anyone else to achieve results.
Sound Therapy may offer immediate emotional relief because it is a method of treatment that requires no extra effort from the user. Sound Therapy does not require the child to struggle with the challenging area and can enjoy a treatment that is not a constant reminder of his or her own challenges because all you do is listen. When using the Sound Therapy Listening Program we usually see an improvement in self-confidence and self-esteem, which leads to a happier state and often a receptive and motivated learner.
