The Pulse Center introduces a listening therapy or APP (Audio-Psycho Phonology) program designed for children which is akin to creative listening therapy. While it is effectively used on all ages, Hanshini Boolaky the Medical Director of Pulse Center wants to focus on its benefits on children with speech delays in Dubai.
It is a program that comes from Germany with headphones used during therapy. Children undergoing this treatment are encouraged to respond with movement activities. Referred to as therapeutic listening, the program yields the best outcome for patients. The music will provide stimulation to the brain. Some changes that patients can expect from the listening therapy program include,
Improve emotional state and emotional expression
Improved expression of needs
Increased attention and awareness to one’s surroundings
The listening program will be tailored to suit each child’s requirements individually”, continues Hanshini Boolaky. “The recorded music will access the child’s nervous system and the brain will be stimulated in the process”. The listening therapy program can be used at home daily to achieve the desired outcome. Pulse Center recommends that the child listen to the music twice a day, every day of the week. The program can last for a few months depending on how well the child responds to it.
“We focus on children realizing their true potential. We hope that through our listening therapy program the child receives auditory stimulation that enhances and stimulates different areas of their brain that helps improve their emotional and social well-being.”
