The Tomatis Method™ can give a profound assist to self-regulation for children on the spectrum. The auditory system is a rich resource for brain and body organization when it functions well. When sub-optimal in its operation, the auditory system detracts from the capacity to listen and attend. The Tomatis Method™ modulates music in a way that retrains the auditory system and the brain to better orient a child to the environment.

I specialize in embodiment through somatic movement and bodywork that balances the nervous system and refines perception. I deliver the Tomatis Method™ in conjunction with whole-body training to help orient the child to a stable center.

Please note that I do not offer the full suite of services that a child on the spectrum might need. So, in order to work with me, ideal candidates will have done the following prior to attempting the Tomatis Method™:

  • addressed dietary changes

  • taken advantage of IEP

  • be verbal or is in speech therapy

  • be toilet-trained
