• Therapeutic Listening

    Therapeutic listening (TL) uses music that is electronically altered. The altered music helps a child to focus on the parts of sound that activates attention and body movement.

    Additionally, TL can improve the following:

    • Attention span
    • Listening skills
    • Ability to interact with others.  

    In therapeutic listening, the child wears headphones and listens to the specially designed CDs for 30 minutes, twice a day. It can be one part of a child’s total therapy program. The program also includes sensory activities that are to be done during the day.

    At Cincinnati Children's, we have therapists who are specially trained to provide this treatment.
