Music also helps your children improve their school performance

For your children to learn more efficiently, they need to have properly integrated visual, auditory, motor, vestibular and cognitive skills to process the information they receive and thus transform it into knowledge or learning.

Hearing is not the same as listening: it’s all a matter of brain attention and focus!

Although the listening process may seem natural or innate, it has been proven that 1 in 10 children have problems correctly understanding and decoding the information they receive, thus affecting their ability to organize it in the brain and, therefore, their ability to learning.

Some difficulties such as dyslexia (problems or errors when reading), dysorthography (problems or errors when writing) or dyspraxia (problems in motor coordination) are closely related to the auditory and visual senses. In these cases, it is advisable to integrate a visual and auditory therapy program that allows the child to work on both sensory aspects to teach him to develop compensatory strategies that strengthen his ability to understand information and control his body.

The Tomatis® Method is a perfect complement to the neuro visual training that we carry out at OPTIVISA to provide a holistic approach that allows us to help your children integrate their visual, motor and cognitive skills through a wide portfolio of sensory stimuli that allow you to improve key aspects such as:
• Memory because children learn to retain a greater amount of information while being able to rank it
• The capacity for attention and concentration, being able to register changes in auditory information and content to discriminate the sounds that are important from those that are not at the moment or situation that is found.
• Rhythm and balance favoring their motor and linguistic coordination
• Attitude and state of mind, since the stimuli work on the limbic system of the children to help them have a better disposition in their academic processes.

How does the Tomatis® Method work?

It consists of a sound sensory stimulation technique, in which the sound is transmitted in two channels:

  1. Bone conduction causing a vibration in the upper part of the skull,
  2. air conduction through the pinna of the ear.

The sudden transition from low frequencies to high frequencies, together with the change in sound transmission between the airway and the bone, cause a double effect of sound perceptual contrast (double alternation of timbre and intensity), intended to “surprise” the listener. brain and ear. It’s like performing auditory gymnastics.

Special headphones and a device called Talks up® programmed are used to deliver a personalized program according to the needs of each child and the objectives that are sought to be achieved.

Each program is made up of a minimum of 3 modules and each of these has a duration of 13 weeks during which the children must listen to the selected music for an average of 2 hours per day.

All programs are planned by our specialists remotely to improve and establish challenges that allow the desired objectives to be achieved.
