    Default Therapeutic listening

    Has any one tried this? J's OT has suggested it and we're on day 2 of having him listen to the CDs. I'd be very interested in hearing any one's experience with it.

    Sorry for the late reply

    We participate in therapeutic listening.

    My son is 6 years old and is ASD, ADHD, OCD, ODD and SPD.

    We started therapeutic listening mid last year and I have noticed a huge difference when he has his headphones on.
    He is more relaxed, focused, compliant and basically he just loves the music.

    Late last year, I let him take the headphones to school to use under the supervision of his teacher, while he is doing schoolwork at his desk.
    He is less disruptive and distracted. The teacher noticed the improvement straight away.

    You can tell with his body language too. You can literally see him relax.

    He's now at the stage when he realises he needs quiet time or chill out time, he just takes his headphones up into bedroom and will happily sit on his bed until he has calmed down. Self regulation is huge with him at the moment, so we're extremely happy.

    I hope that helps!

    I tried this, although I am supportive of it, I found it didn't help us, although i may not have been doing it correctly.
