does LISTENING affect our lives?
Because listening is such an important aspect of
lives, and because our auditory system has such a profound impact on
how we function, it is fair to say that anyone could benefit
from an auditory stimulation program such as The Listening Program.
Specifically TLP was designed for children (ages 2 and older)
and adults who have auditory perceptual / processing concerns.
The following is a video presentation discussing and explaining The
In children, auditory
problems may be identified by speech and language problems, sensitivity
to sounds, poor attention, difficulty following directions, difficulty
expressing oneself, difficulty with listening comprehension as well as
reading comprehension, difficulty with social interactions, or auditory
self-stimulation, such as constant humming or
self-talk. Children who have had a history of ear infections
or chronic middle ear fluid are at a higher risk for having
difficulties in auditory perception and processing.
In adults, auditory problems may manifest as difficulty
retaining auditory information, inattentiveness, sound sensitivity, or
speech/language and voice concerns. For individuals who have
hearing loss, an auditory stimulation program is important to aid in
improving the functional use of their hearing. So although actual
hearing levels may remain the same (as indicated on an audiogram), TLP
may help to train the individual's listening skills so that existing
hearing may be used more efficiently.
Improvement in auditory
processing is just the beginning ... Incredible care
has been taken to use expertise from the best minds in the field to
create an auditory therapy program that is easy to do at home, is
immensely enjoyable, and also extremely successful in strengthening
auditory and related abilities. Here is a program that can benefit
anyone, but especially individuals who have difficulties in the
areas of auditory perception, processing, and memory.

The Listening Program
® was designed to help balance,
strengthen, and/or restore our ability to listen to and process sounds
across the full auditory spectrum, from 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz. This can
result in striking improvements across the human continuum, from academic
performance to emotional balance.
UsingThe Listening Program® literally exercises and tones tiny muscles in the ear and helps
build stronger multi-sensory pathways in the brain. The brain
receives especially rich auditory stimulation, and its ability to
process sound improves.
In " The Power of Sound," Joshua Leeds explores the
importance of healthy auditory functioning and says, "From the womb to
the moment we die, what we hear either energizes or depletes our

Many of us, children and
adults alike, are NOT "listening" to our fullest potential. In fact,
many people experience "listening disabilities" or "auditory
disabilities" and do not even realize it.
These weaknesses or problems in processing sound can
adversely affect us in many ways including: communication
skills, learning abilities, attention and behavior, energy levels,
coordination, relaxation, brain function, and sensory integration.
Improving or enhancing our ability to process sound can produce
People of all ages can be trained to process sound more

Over forty years ago, a French ear surgeon, Dr. Alfred
Tomatis, made a series of groundbreaking discoveries about the role of
the ear and hearing in brain development and organization. We now
know that, before birth, the human brain's first sensory experiences
are the rich sounds inside the womb. Tomatis showed that our
auditory nerve is fundamental to human neurology; it helps to regulate
not only balance and spatial orientation, but even vision and our
tactile senses. He also discovered that sound is a " nutrient
" that can stimulate and feed the brain. One of his greatest
innovations was to find new ways to stimulate the ear and brain that
can improve hearing, learning, and behavior.

I first noticed was the difference in my son's speech and his
ability to express himself. His voice even changed!"
Decades of clinical
experience combined with the evolution of new technology have made
important new advances possible. An unprecedented cross-disciplinary
team (including professionals in neurology, psychiatry,
neurodevelopment, education, speech pathology, psychoacoustics, music
and sound engineering) came together to conceive and design The
Listening Program ® -- the next generation of
auditory stimulation technology.
The Listening Program was thoroughly tested and its success was
confirmed. Then it was further refined and perfected. It
contains an unprecedented combination of the most powerful new advances
in the art and science of auditory re-education.
The principles behind The Listening Program are scientific. Its
protocols were fine-tuned by qualified professionals. Its effectiveness
was confirmed by the field tests that were a part of the development
process. The music on the CDs in The Listening Program
® was specifically performed by the world-class musicians
of The Archangelos Chamber Ensemble, and recorded (to exacting
specifications) for this specific purpose. Nevertheless, the program is
affordable and The Listening Program ® can be used
at home under the professional supervision of Rocky Mountain Learning
Systems' consultants. ( See Intake Procedure
