What were we asked?
A parent queried what the evidence was for Tomatis treatment, and whether it was simply a calming therapy or had some medical benefits. Tomatis is a specific type of sound therapy used with children with ADHD, Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Learning Difficulties (LD).
- The Tomatis Method is a complementary or alternative treatment which is only provided privately. The treatment is a form of Auditory Integration Training.
- Currently, there is no high quality evidence that Auditory Integration Training can provide improvement in children’s functioning or communication over what would be expected with typical development over time.
