We are able to tailor our Clinic Programs to meet the unique needs of each client. Our typical clinic program involve 30 listening sessions over thirteen weeks. Each 80-minute session has four 20-minute segments, each with different frequency filter or music. In some cases, shorter or longer programs are appropriate (15, 23, 45-60 sessions). Regular re-testing ensures that the structure and pace of the program can be adjusted to optimise the client’s performance gains. We use a Dynamic Listening System with studio-quality equipment and iLs Professional systems to deliver high quality auditory programs through both air and bone conduction. While we can offer any guarantees for an individual client, in almost every case, our programs have facilitated noticeable improvements across a wide range of learning, physical, communication, emotional and behavioural issues. Program structure The first listening stage is PRE-FILTRATION. Most programs start with three-eight session in this stage. During this phase we use music which covers the entire audible range together as well as using filtered music where mid and high frequencies have been removed – leaving only the low notes which targets the sensory-motor zone. The second listening stage is GRADUAL FILTRATION. Over three to five sessions, the lower frequencies (deeper sounds) are progressively removed. During these sessions we also use special filters to target the communication and integration zones - frequencies between 0.75-3kHz and above 750Hz. The third listening stage is FILTERED MUSIC (usually five to eight sessions). In these sessions we continue the emphasis on the high frequencies of the creative zone. The music sounds very squeaky can be hard to listen to. We use a recording of the mother’s voice in most programs at this stage. We use a recording of the mother’s voice for most clients in this stage. We do this because the fetus starts listening in the fourth month after conception and by the 20th week is fully functional. So the mother’s voice imprints the fetus and has a profound influence on the construction of the child’s auditory system, the subsequent acquisition of language and the ability to communicate. Listening starts in the fourth month after conception and The fourth listening stage is the DE-FILTRATION to complete the receptive phase. Over three to five sessions, the lower frequencies are progressively restored. Some clients finish here. The fifth stage targets EXPRESSIVE LANGUAGE to improve speech and speaking. This is also called the Active phase because it involve actively talking into the microphone to improve voice and speech quality. This Expressive phase and usually span five to ten sessions. These can be continued with a mixer, microphone and an Integrated Listeningprogram at home. After completing a program, it is sometimes beneficial to sustain continued improvements using an Integrated Listening Program at home. Voice work can be continued with the addition of a mixer and microphone.
