TOMATIS® BONE CONDUCTION KIT


TESTIMONIAL I have always worked with highly sensitive people, most of whom are children with autism and, less often, adults with physical and cognitive disabilities. These specific profiles require a slow and careful procedure to gain confidence. The use of the Tomatis® bone conduction kit allows them to gain confidence, especially during the first listening sessions, when they may be surprised by the particular sounds of the Tomatis® Method. Sensitive children do not need intense stimulation at the beginning of the program. And whatever the age, the Bone Conduction Kit is an ideal preliminary step before considering sessions with the Tomatis® headset for sensitive people. You can use the Bone Conduction Kit in several ways and also use your imagination to improve the child’s involvement in the program. Mrs Piera Ferraro Rettenbacher Music Therapist and Tomatis® Consultant Level 4 in Innsbruck, Austria

Personally, I particularly appreciate the belt that I use in different ways, as it has a gentle and effective approach. The first results, in general, don’t take long to appear. However, never forget that a large part of the change is happening at home. I therefore recommend that you always talk to parents about the symptoms that may gradually affect their child: sleep, play, engagement, improved attention, independent behavior, less anxiety... The Tomatis® Method is an interactive intervention, and this new accessory provides a real «plus» to work with such a particular population.
