Music-Based Auditory Stimulation Program

The Listening Program® (TLP) is a music-based auditory stimulation™ method. It is a safe, effective, drug-free approach that helps improve brain function, reduce stress, and trains the brain in the auditory skills needed to effectively listen, learn and communicate. The primary purpose of TLP is to bring the auditory system into balance so that the auditory system processes sound accurately. It is like getting high speed internet hookup when you are used to dial-up. Learning is faster, easier and more effective.

This home-based program involves listening to the specially recorded music which lays the foundation for improvement in listening, memory, coordination and attention. Children as young as two will benefit and it is especially helpful for children with language delays.

It consists of an extensive series of high-quality audio CDs that integrate specially produced acoustic music, primarily classical, with innovative sound processing techniques.

Advanced Brain Technologies, LLC (ABT) developed The Listening Program® building upon key concepts originated by the late Alfred Tomatis, M.D., a pioneer in the field of auditory intervention.

When auditory perception is distorted—whether through illness, injury, developmental, or other challenges—auditory processing problems can lead to academic, emotional, cognitive and social challenges, including problems with the following:

• Attention and concentration
• Listening (even adults with minor hearing loss can experience improvements in processing language)
• Speech and language
• Memory
• Communication
• Social skills
• Reading
• Sensory integration
• Physical balance and coordination
• Vocal performance and musical ability

Whether you are interested in expanding your own abilities or helping someone you care about, TLP can make a significant difference. See The Listening Program website for research results.
