As readers of this blog will know, Snowdrop, in conjunction with American neurotechnology company, Advanced Brain Technologies,' began to offer 'The Listening Programme' to its clients. The reason we did this is because TLP has scientific evidence to support its use. In particular, it was evidence provided by a study carried out by the University of Sheffield, - my own university which impressed me.
We now have half a dozen families whose children are using TLP in conjunction with their Snowdrop developmental programme and the initial results look very promising, with changes being observed in all children. The changes being observed include a reduction in activity, increased attention, reduced auditory hypersensitivity, increased eye contact, increased quantity of and clearer language production, amongst many other small changes.
I would like to share an email which I received yesterday from a Dad whose little boy has very bad ADHD. His ongoing Snowdrop programme has reduced his level of activity dramatically, but the supplementation of TLP has also had beneficial effects upon this and in other areas, such as auditory hypersensitivity, concentration, etc. I quote directly.
"I just wanted to catch up with you on how ---- has been getting on with the listening program.
So far his speech has improved as has his concentration. He will sing jingle bells and can almost now bear happy birthday. He will sit and do his numbers and alphabet for 5 minutes without any problems at all and he is also now willing to actually communicate without prompting. Sleeping has been no problem with 11-12 hours a night. ---- is more willing to follow instructions and though will have a quick moan if you tell him it is the end of computer time he will still get off the computer. All that is good news."
