there is a wide array of learning difficulties and between 4 and 6% of children suffer from them.
These difficulties are not due to a lack of intelligence, or unfavorable socioeconomic circumstances, or to a psychoaffective problem. Many learning difficulties have a neurobiological origin because of prenatal developmental problems. Such conditions include dyslexia (reading difficulties), dysorthographia (the relation of sounds to written letters), dyspraxia (the use and coordination of learned gestures) dysphasia (for spoken language) and dyscalculia (concerning mathematical functions and numbers).
The Tomatis® Method utilizes the natural plasticity of the neural circuits involved in the decoding and analysis of sounds, balance and coordination, to retrain the brain. The Tomatis® Method can help children develop compensatory strategies to deal with and manage their learning difficulties and language disorders. The Tomatis® Method does not eliminate these issues but helps the person with these problems manage them more effectively.
