Children with Global Developmental Delay(GDD) have difficulty overall communication and socialization. A study showed that children with GDD have a diffused distribution of “mirror neurons” in the brain. They are the ones mainly responsible in activating the brain areas involved in movement, language, and overall comprehension within social interactions. So, these neurons enable children to appropriately behave and/or respond to daily stimuli, which then plays an essential role in our life.
In the initial stage (passive phase), the Tomatis® Method works primarily with the ear, sending music in special contrasts or commonly called as “filters”. This trains the brain to acknowledge the random variation and gain effects from the changes. In the active phase, the subject now provides a tone that is automatically attuned by the device providing what the brain should perceive.
Repetitively, one learns to naturally adjusts to the demands of social interaction. Also, it has a positive effect on the inner ear’s vestibule system, the organ responsible for motor skills, laterality, and muscle tone regulation. The Tomatis® Method is a professional assistance tool that helps with developmental delays in terms of cognitive development, language and communication, and behaviour.
Being able to provide interventions during the early childhood years is critical. This is because these are the years where the brain is significantly growing and comprehensively developing. In this way, we will be able to make huge impacts for the benefit of your child’s future. Record your observations in our Listening Checklist and write us your concerns!
