Modulating brain activity through sound

Auditory Training Programâ„¢

Auditory training develops the ability of the auditory system to differentiate between fine differences in frequencies and other auditory skills. These skills underlie many processes such as language development, auditory information processing and auditory discrimination. Difficulties within these domains may lead to the development of auditory processing difficulties, poor auditory attention, poor short term auditory memory skills and other difficulties.

A broad battery of standardized auditory processing and speech and language assessment tools are utilized to identify specific auditory processing deficits. These tools enable Auditory Training Program practitioners to establish specific protocols for each individual client, and monitor the progress of the customized programs.

Suitable for all

The program is suitable for both adults and children. Each program is tailored to the specific needs and requirements of the individual.


Intensive Program

A typical course of the Auditory Training Program consists of 30 hours, spread across 3 weeks. Sessions are undertaken for 2 hours per day, 5 days per week.


Global effects

Whilst the therapy is received by listening and attending to modified music and sound, clinical experience suggests global attentional changes beyond the auditory domain.
