Listening programs are based on the work of Dr. Tomatis and provide children an auditory approach to improving sensory processing problems. They benefit children who are disorganized, anxious or have sensory defensiveness, especially auditory defensiveness. Listening programs at KidAbilities are usually implemented as part of a whole therapy plan. There are many different 'listening programs'. Some of KidAbilities' staff is trained in the use of “Therapeutic Listening", some staff is trained in the “The Listening Program” and others in "Integrated Listening."
