The program is suitable for both adults and children. Each program is tailored to the specific needs and requirements of the individual.
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.
Whilst the therapy is received by listening and attending to modified music and sound, clinical experience suggests global attentional changes beyond the auditory domain.
The Auditory Training Program is provided using an electronic processor, the design of which is based on the collaborative work between Christophe Besson and Dr Alfred Tomatis. The latest equipment incorporates the benefits of recent electronic circuitry and design refinements, as well as the clarity of 24-bit music in order to deliver state-of-the-art auditory training.
Besson’s Auditory Training System uses electronically modified music and language to stimulate the auditory pathways and enhance auditory neural plasticity to assist and improve auditory processing abilities. Auditory training enhances the ability of the auditory system to differentiate between fine differences in frequencies and other auditory skills, which are a pre-requisite for language development, and for the processing of all auditory information. Difficulties in processing sound to its full potential can manifest themselves auditory processing difficulties, poor auditory attention, poor short term auditory memory skills and other difficulties such as Difficulties in processing sound to its full potential can manifest themselves auditory processing difficulties, poor auditory attention, poor short term auditory memory skills and other difficulties such as learning difficulties, including poor reading and spelling, poor communication skills, poor coordination and balance, and difficulties with sensory integration.
