Questions to ask yourself about your child's behavior:

  • Is my child an excessive risk taker, jumping and crashing into anything they can? 

  • Why can’t my child do puzzles, write well, or find the coordination for riding a bike or hitting a ball?

  • Why does my child cry or cover their ears with every loud sound (noise from TV in the other room, the vacuum, the telephone)?

  • Why doesn't my child like to be touched?

  • Why can't my child ever sit still?

  • Why will my child only eat the same foods?

  • Why will my child only wear certain clothes or need me to cut the tags out of their shirts? Why does my child despise wearing socks?

  • Why can’t I seem to calm my child or get them to sleep?

  • Why won’t my child put their hands in anything messy or use glue, Play Doh, or play with mud?

  • Why does my child fear playground equipment or being tipped upside down?

  • Why do crowded stores bother my child so much, leading to major meltdowns in public places?​

Sensory Integration Programs

Quantum Reflex Integration

The program uses a cutting edge combination of low level lasers (light), sound harmonics and acu-reflex points to assist the brain and body to efficiently integrate retained reflexes.

Sensory Integration

What is Sensory Integration?

Sensory Integration is the normal, neurological, developmental process that begins in the womb and continues throughout one’s life. Our neurological system takes information in from the environment through our senses. This information will affect daily functioning, social and family relationships, behavioral challenges, regulating emotions, self-esteem, learning, and dealing with the every day challenges.

Typically, the brain organizes the information taken in from our senses which then enables us to use it and respond appropriately within the environment. The reactions to specific sensory input is about how this input is taken in, organized, and utilized to interpret one's environment and make the body ready to learn, move, regulate energy levels and emotions, interact, and develop properly.

If the neurological process becomes disrupted in a way that the brain does receive the sensory information, that the wrong information was sent, or the message was sent and received by the brain but the appropriate response was not formed, then the normal development and adaptive responses will not be achieved accordingly. It is the frequency, intensity, duration and functional impact of these symptoms which determines dysfunction.

What is the difference between Sensory Integration Dysfunction & Sensory Processing Disorder?

These terms are commonly

confused. Sensory Integration is mainly used to describe the theory and treatment based off of the work done by Jean Ayres. Sensory processing disorder is used to describe and define the disorder and dysfunction symptoms.

The Senses That  Affect Sensory Integration:

We are all familiar with the 5 senses:

  • Tactilethe sense of touch

  • Auditory: input relating to sounds

  • Oral: input relating to the mouth

  • Olfactory: input relating to smell

  • Visual: input relating to sight.

There are TWO MORE SENSES that some people may be unaware of:

  • Vestibular: the sense of movement; input from the inner ear about equilibrium, gravitational changes, movement experiences and position in space. Your inner ear is highly coordinated with the neck and back muscles and affects balance and coordination.

  • Proprioception: the sense of "position"; input from the muscles and joints about body position, weight, pressure, stretch, movement and changes in position. Proprioception is where your body is in relation to space. 

When the vestibular sense (gravity and movement) and proprioceptive sense (muscles and joints) are not work effectively, the child will display difficulty with eye movements, posture, balance, muscle tone, and gravitational insecurity.

Those difficulties will translate into difficulties with body perception, coordinating two sides of the body, motor planning, activity level, attention span, and emotional stability. When the tactile sense (touch) is not working effectively, the child may display difficulty with sucking and eating. Not integrating the tactile sense effectively may also impact the mother-infant bond and tactile comfort which is the ability to be hugged or touched without having a negative response.

These difficulties will also then lead to difficulties with activity level, attention span, and emotional stability, which then later leads to problems with purposeful activity. It is important to understand that if your child has difficulty integrating their senses, that these are some of the issues they may face.

Ultimately, the end result of these difficulties will lead to the inability to concentrate and organize, low self esteem, poor self control, and low self confidence. Academic learning ability is compromised, the capacity for abstract thought and reasoning may be lacking and specialization of each side of the body and brain can be affected. Remember, the more a child is motivated to participate in activities, the greater the chance that the child will persist in challenges that lead to improved function.

The Listening Program® (TLP)

About The Listening Program

The Listening Program® (TLP) is a music listening therapy developed by Advanced Brain Technologies, which provides engaging brain stimulation to improve performance in school, work and life.
Systematic training is provided through listening to psychoacoustically modified classical music which trains the brain to process sound more efficiently. This leads to improvements in:

About TLP®

TLP® is a fusion of beautiful art and sound science. The masterful performances of the award-winning players of the Arcangelos Chamber Ensemble are skillfully crafted using advanced audio technologies to provide an unrivaled listening experience.  Listening to psychoacoustically modified classical music impacts a wide rage of abilities, such as reading, communication, learning and memory.

Who is TLP® for and How Long Does It Take?

Children, teens, adults and seniors can use the program in the home, classroom or workplace. Completely portable and easy to use, The Listening Program® fits easily into anyone's schedule and only requires 15 to 30 minutes of daily listening.   A complete session can be completed in 10 weeks-20 weeks.
How does TLP® work?

TLP’s psychoacoustically modified music and patent-pending production techniques are designed to stimulate or “exercise” the different functions of the auditory processing system. This enables the brain to better receive, process, store and utilize the valuable information provided through the varied soundscapes in our lives such as music, language and the environment in which we live.

The Ear Brain Connection

So the question can we overcome auditory processing challenges - moving from a “disorganized” to an “organized” system.
Certain classical music, like that of Mozart, Haydn and Vivaldi, has specific structure, producing sound waves in organized patterns. Within these patterns are vital elements including time, frequency and volume. When listening to music, the ear is receiving the musical sound waves - waves that arrive in different frequencies, measured in Hertz (Hz). These frequencies stimulate the brain, and thus affect different functions of the mind and body.

Specific Frequencies for Specific Functions

TLP® combines decades of clinical research in several fields, including neurology, physiology, psycho-acoustics, auditory processing, music theory and more. The method builds on the work of respected leaders in these fields, such as ear, nose and throat (ENT) physician Alfred A. Tomatis, M.D. (1920-2001). Among other discoveries, Dr. Tomatis helped identify the relationship between certain sound frequencies and their effect on their functions of the mind and body.  A simplified explanation of Dr. Tomatis' findings shows that certain brands, or zones, of sound frequencies affect different abilities.   TLP® is designed to address these zones, systematically providing auditory stimulation that, when customized for listeners by ABT Providers, can help improve their ability to function in a number of ways.
