Therapeutic Listening

Therapeutic Listening Cardinal Kids ProgramsTherapeutic Listening was developed by Occupational Therapists Sheila Frick, OTR/L and Colleen Hacker, OTR/L. Therapeutic Listening uses sound training along with sensory integrative activities, which emphasizes vestibular stimulation and postural movements. This sound training is typically done at home for 30 minutes each course of music, twice a day. It is a less intensive form of sound therapy and the entire process can take about 6 months. Sound is delivered through air conduction. The sound stimulation used in Therapeutic Listening is designed to set up the nervous system and prepare it for emergent skills. As a result we see improvements in perceptual, motor, attention, and learning difficulties.
