Dyspraxia is motor planning difficulty of the brain. Because of the immaturity of the motor cortex part of the brain, it prevents messages from being properly transmitted to the body. Difficulties in our fine and gross motor skills and coordination can be linked to failures of our vestibular system (an organ in our inner ear).
The Tomatis® Method is an educational program directly affecting the connections between the ear, the body, and the brain to provide the necessary commands to the body. It promotes deep and rhythmic sound transmission on the vestibule creating a positive effect on the brain and the motor functions even in producing sounds. As a result, the Tomatis® Method can effectively intervene on difficulties with rhythm and coordination, speech, and executive functioning.
