The TOMATIS method sound programme was created by Dr Alfred Tomatis, a French ENT (ear, nose and throat surgeon) around the 1950s and 1960s. The Tomatis sound therapy is based on the fact that the Cranial Nerve VIII transports auditory and vestibular information. The vestibular system has many interconnections with almost every other part of the brain; hence the Tomatis sound therapy works on regulation/attention, body and emotional goals. In effect it helps to reorganise the foundations so that sensory information can be perceived in a more organised way. The TalksUp device allows this programme to be performed at home.

The addition of the TomatisĀ® Programme to therapy helps to improve:

  • Sensory processing
  • Listening
  • Attention
  • Communication
  • Motor planning and motor coordination
