Sound Therapy for Dyspraxia
Dyspraxia is a neurological developmental disability which is present from birth. It is a motor planning disorder not a muscular deficit. The person knows what they want their body to do but they cannot get their body to do it. There are three different types of dyspraxia – oral, verbal, and motor. A person can have one or all three types and the disorder varies in severity. It is believed to be an immaturity of parts of the motor cortex (in the brain) that stops messages from being properly transmitted to the body. Dyspraxia does not affect intelligence in any way but it can impact on behaviour and social skills.
Dyspraxia occurs irrespective of intelligence or background and more often in males. It can be hereditary and affects up to ten percent of the population to some extent and up to one in thirty in a more severe form. There often is an overlap with related conditions.
The difficulties with motor skills ranging from fine motor skills (such as handwriting) to gross motor skills (such as running and general coordination issues). Some early indicators of dyspraxia may include a failure to go through the crawling stages, avoiding tasks that require dexterity, (i.e. playing with Lego or jigsaw puzzles), poor body awareness (bumping into things), language difficulties and late in establishing a dominant hand.
How Can Sound Therapy Help
An underlying cause of dyspraxia is often an unpractised and immature vestibular system (the balance mechanism located in the inner ear). It mediates other systems in the body including proprioception (our ability to know where our body is in space) and binocularity (our eyes working together as a team). Imbalances in these or other sensory systems, or the retention of reflexes (automatic reactions), may all be implicated in dyspraxia.
Imbalances in the sensory systems and the reflexes can be addressed through our flagship program The Sound Therapy Listening Program to bring balance and co-ordination back.

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.
