Location: Walnut Creek Barnes & Noble in the Music Section
Guest speakers: Dr. Swain and Lindsay Swain, Director
Topic: The Listening Center, Inc. "Tomatis" and how it relates to those with ASD and other neurocognitive issues.
The Tomatis Method is based on the work of Dr. Alfred A. Tomatis. Dr. Tomatis was a French physician and Otolaryngology specialist who has spent the past 50 years developing a methodology which assists and accelerates the development of listening skills, language and communication. The Tomatis Method has been successfully applied by speech, language, and learning specialists through out the United States. Not only has this method seen success here in the U.S., it has been used by special education teachers and psychologists in Canada as well as physicians, musicians, teachers, and orthophonists in Europe. The success rates in Europe are so high that it is covered by insurance companies to treat various learning disabilities and learning problems. More info HERE
