People of all ages can reap the benefit from optimising their ability to hear and process sound correctly.

Here in Cambridge, I use the Johansen Individualised Auditory Stimulation programme to assess and devise treatment plans for people who need to improve their reading, writing and comprehension.

As part of the assessment, I will also carry out neuromotor checks on balance, coordination and developmental reflexes, where appropriate, to gain a deeper understanding of the issues impacting the client.

Auditory processing difficulties can be at the root of a child’s problems at school. When a child finds it hard to remember what they’ve been told to do, daydreams in class and writing even the shortest piece takes great effort, there’s a strong chance that their brain doesn’t process sensory information effectively.

Those children who had a lot of ear infections or glue ear in their early development are particularly prone to developing auditory processing difficulties. Just as they’re learning to speak and interact with the world, their ears are blocked or painful.  This can impact their stable acquisition of language and when faced with phonics and spelling at school, learning can become an overwhelming struggle. 

School age children find they can concentrate better, follow instruction and write more fluidly after a Johansen therapy programme. Older people who have lost some functionality in the way they interpret sound, or who develop sensitivity to noise can also experience benefit.
