Parent’s programme

It is beneficial for the parent-child relationship that at least one parent ‘listens in’ during Listening Training. Hence we offer parents listening sessions without any additional charge. With young children we may also wish to record 
the mother’s voice, and present it, filtered in a way that mimics how her voice was first heard by the child while still in 
the womb. Creating this so-called ‘audio rebirth’ can result in a more affectionate relationship and mother-child bonding.

We have years of experience with clients ‘up and down the spectrum’, and have seen first-hand 
how Listening Training can make the difference in those with autism, from a state of withdrawal and hardly any verbal contact, to an energy and eagerness to take part in the world. And this world often starts with bonding with the parent or caregiver who is closest. So, that makes it ideal to have them present during the sessions.

It may not always be the right thing to do, but sometimes it is effective to offer an adopted child this experience as well. Not through using the birth mother’s voice, but by recording the adoptive mother’s voice. Having the opportunity of connecting on such a different level can be a precious experience.
