Change Your Perspective: Sound Therapy is not Auditory Therapy

So very often clients come to me, knowing that I am an audiologist and assume that what I am going to help them with is their hearing and/or related auditory skills. My background is as an audiologist and the foundation behind The Davis Model of Sound Intervention stems from my knowledge of audiology, as well as, my background in education and development. However, over the years, sciences including physics – particularly the physics of sound, metaphysics, biometrics and biology, and the concept of ‘energy medicine’ have all contributed to the foundation of my model. As a result, there is more to The Davis Model of Sound Intervention than ‘just hearing or auditory skills’. The therapies are introduced along the continuum of The Tree of Sound Enhancement Therapy® initially identified from The Diagnostic Evaluation for Therapy Protocol (DETP®) which determines if, when, how long and in what order any or all of the many different sound-based therapies can be appropriately applied.

Sound Differences: Essential for Language Development

Sound difference weaknesses are often considered to be an auditory processing skill weakness. However, within this context, they are more foundational at the sound processing level, as defined within The Tree of Sound Enhancement Therapy®. Depending upon the results of the Diagnostic Evaluation for Therapy Protocol (DETP®), it is important to support each person with change by using the appropriate therapy at the level identified. The types of sound-based therapies that may be suggested and used to make change are Auditory Integration Training, the Tomatis® Method, and/or EnListen® as examples. When used in the correct order, these methods can make change with how sound is received and processed by the brain and the body. As a result, sound difference weaknesses are often improved.

The Three Neuro Reflexes and How They Affect Hearing

There are three neuro-reflexes that can affect ‘hearing’. While the literature available on these reflexes often talk about the responses as they relate to hearing aid usage or while examining the ear, it may be also important to connect these same reflexes to the processes that I discuss in The Davis Model of Sound Intervention, where I look at the ear not only as a hearing mechanism but as our body’s global sensory processor.
