Sara O’Neill, OTD, OTR/L, occupational therapist at Alpha Rehabilitation of Kearney, NE has become a trained Therapeutic Listening Provider.
Therapeutic Listening is a research based tool for treating people of all ages who have difficulty with processing sensory information, listening, attention, and communication. Therapeutic Listening is a sound-based intervention often implemented as part of a comprehensive, multi-faceted therapy program, which encompasses much more than just the ears but the whole-body. Like other sensory systems, the auditory system does not work in isolation. Neurologically it is connected to all levels of brain function and as a result has a vast range of influence. How we listen impacts not only our overall physiology, but also our behavior.
