Another new part of Bubba’s life is Therapeutic Listening. Some folks think it’s a bunch of hooey, but Little did this when she was about 2 and it really helped her vestibular system find some balance. Example: she would NOT swing when she was little. If we set her in the child’s swing she would shake – violently. She had no sense of her body in space and hanging in air like that scared her to death.
So, what is TL? I tried to type an explanation but failed miserable so I thought you could look here to read about it. If you’re like me and not proned to clicking through on links, I will tell you this much: Therapeutic Listening™ selectively combines a number of electronically altered compact discs within a Sensory Integrative frame of reference. Individual listening programs are created and customized by a trained occupational therapists, including type of music, length of treatment session, home program and duration of the program.
Bubba LOVES it. I have seen obvious effects in his speech – it is FREAKY!! I love it. Complete sentences, talks to KB, attends better to instruction. We’re gonna keep on for a bit and see what else we see!
