SAMPLE LOLLIPOP LISTENING THERAPY

Posted on: November 2nd, 2017 by

Lollipop Listening Therapy® takes the listener through the entire audible spectrum so that it trains the ears and brain to pick up and process sound without distortions, without missing any acoustic information. Perceiving too little information is just as bad as perceiving too much. The object of auditory training is to balance out the auditory system, balance out the neurological system, and create a better listener – one who isn’t under stress to understand incoming information, and one who is able to clearly and concisely express outgoing information.

This is Lollipop pre-programmed on the iPod, but it can also be purchased as a CD set.

 

Daily listening on Lollipop can be accomplished in a quick 30 minutes a day, Monday thru Friday. While listening, the child is engaged in sensory integration activities (bouncing, swinging, jumping, crossing mid-line, working on hand-eye coordination just to name a few). A 2-day mandatory break of the weekend is taken to let the brain assimilate the information. A lot of the changes are actually seen during these breaks. Monday through Friday, the ear will be worked out to a rigorous Mozart medley enhanced through sound engineering techniques and Sound Therapy Systems’ revolutionary E.A.R. Formula:

With the E.A.R. Formula, the ear is first “Engaged” by the music, locked in, in a sort of “priming phase to acclimate it to the program. The ear then “Attends” to the music in the rigorous training portion of the program. Finally, the ear recovers from the work-out in the “Return” phase bringing it back to its pre-engaged state.

You will feel the music pulling on the middle ear muscles to tone them up to make them stronger so they become better filters of sound. You will feel the music rotate in a 360 degree sound field to train the ears to pick up sound from all around, not just left and right. The music changes frequencies at different points in the program so you will hear the music clear once, then a bit muffled the next. This is blocking out certain frequencies and keeping others audible. It keeps the ears and the brain engaged and working hard to lay down new brain cells.

Listen for yourself what your child will hear on this program. Sample a snippet of a song by emailing: Sharon@LollipopListeningTherapy.com and putting: I WANT TO SAMPLE LOLLIPOP in the subject line. We will send you out a sample. This is just a sample and is only intended for that purpose. This small snippet will not constitute a therapy program if you try to use it over and over and over again. Please consult with us at Lollipop Listening Therapy for any questions or if you are interested in moving forward with this program.  Watch our promo video:

Did you know that each sound corresponds to a set of frequencies? Learning to read can often be difficult in children whose ears can’t automatically perceive those frequencies. Subsequently, the brain will not be able to interpret those sounds. Teachers expect children to link up letters with sounds and then lump several together to yield syllables, then turn those into words, and finally into sentences. This is how reading begins. BUT, if the ears and brain are not working in tandem, if the ears can’t feed the brain the information it needs to start linking those sounds into words, into sentences, well then, Johnny won’t be able to read – and he will have a whole host of other problems too. Throw in the fact that B’s sound like D’s and M’s sound like N’s and V’s and F’s are only slightly different due to overtones (ie: Very vs Fairy – they sound a like, right?). Now add to the confusion that the ears have to do this in a very rapid manner. Reading requires the ears and the eyes to work together within a limited amount of time. One part of the ear, the vestibule, which controls the movement and muscles of the body, leads the eyes from letter to letter. Now another part of the ear, the cochlea (which controls the auditory function), needs to translate the letters into sound. And still another part, your brain, has to take the sound and process it so that it comes out of your voice correctly. If your eyes can’t follow along and go from letter to letter, if your ears can’t turn those letters into sound, then your brain can’t decode the message and you are stuck with a reading problem and a writing problem, because they go hand in hand.

Now, if we retrain the ears to be able to pick up all of the frequencies of sound, the eyes will track better, the ears will give sound to the letters better (and quicker) and reading, writing and speaking will come together in harmony over time.

Lollipop Listening Therapy takes the child through all of the frequencies of sound using modulated music that specifically hones in and focuses on a particular bandwidth of frequencies in the music at a time to let the brain lay down those frequencies and create new neural connections. All the child has to do is listen to the music for 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week. Week by week, the training intensifies and the ears start to perceive better, the body starts to work better and learning just got a lot easier for your child. Music can do all that!

Please take a moment to look at our website www.LollipopListeningTherapy.com and learn more about how you can help your child with their deficits by using Lollipop Listening Therapy. Maybe they have a speech delay, maybe they have sensory issues, maybe they have auditory processing issues, maybe they have fine/gross motor issues, maybe math is difficult for them, maybe they stutter, maybe they are hyper, maybe they are tired and can’t get motivated, maybe they have messy handwriting. IT ALL HAS TO DO WITH HOW THE EARS AND BRAIN ARE OPERATING!

VIDEO: A Mom’s Testimonial about Lollipop Listening Therapy and her Autistic Son.

Posted on: October 2nd, 2015 by

In just 8 short weeks (that’s just 2 months y’all!), this mom is over the moon about the changes in her Autistic son using Lollipop Listening Therapy. Just listen…!

 

I love hearing from parents about all the wonderful things that are happening to their kids using Lollipop Listening Therapy. I sell Lollipop all over the world, and Lollipop is changing lives all over the world, too. But being hundreds and even thousands of miles away from a child who is using my Lollipop system leaves me little opportunity to really see the day to day changes in them. Sure, their parents fill out observation forms and send them in to me weekly, but it’s just not the same as seeing it for myself.

Do you want to make a “SOUND” decision? Lollipop Listening Therapy is the best tool on the market to re-educate the ears and brain to “listen”. These moms are seeing amazing changes in their children. Small changes lead to big changes and soon your child is mastering things you never thought they could.

I am a mom who has been in your shoes. I know the daily struggles you are faced with when you have a child with special needs. I know it’s not easy. But having a mom like me on your therapy team, on your side, will give you not only the support you are looking for, but the expertise you need in helping your child. I am plugged in to a plethora of specialists along with my own experiences from the last decade. You can’t do it alone…and you don’t have to.

Call me at 571-435-3518 Washington DC time, USA, and I will be happy to discuss the Lollipop program that is right for your child.

And, if you want to speak with this mom in the video to learn more about her son’s progress and to just get a mom’s perspective, email me and I’ll connect you. I know it’s very helpful to speak with parents going through a therapy you are considering. She’d be happy to speak with you!

Is Your Child’s Right-Ear Dominant? It SHOULD Be! Let Lollipop Listening Therapy Change How Your Child Listens.

Right-Ear Dominance

 

The ears pick up sounds differently. Good control over one‘s voice did not mean that both ears worked the same way – on the contrary. Though we have two ears and from the outside it may look as if they collect and process sound similarly and simultaneously, each ear has its own function. Dr. Tomatis believed there was a dominant ear, the right ear, which took a leading role in controlling how we listen as well as how our voice sounded. This was due to the connection each ear has with the hemispheres of the brain. 

 

The right ear makes a contra-lateral (crisscross) connection with the left hemisphere of the brain as shown in Figure 16. This is a fast connection without incurring delays. Having no place to process sound in the right hemisphere of the brain, which makes a connection with the left ear, sound coming into the left ear must travel to the right brain but cannot be processed for lack of a language center for doing so in the right hemisphere.

 

Therefore the sounds have to be transferred via the corpus collosum (like a bridge between the hemispheres) to be interpreted by the left hemisphere. This creates delays in the processing, albeit  milliseconds, but sounds can be omitted or misinterpreted by the time they get to the left brain to be processed. Lollipop Listening Therapy will push right ear dominance so the listener will train their right ear to pick up sounds first and become dominant. This will improve their speech, communication, voice, auditory processing and more.

The Kids Who Beat Autism! Yes, Recovery IS Possible… My Daughter, Ashley, is Living Proof!

Posted on: August 2nd, 2014 by

Recently, the New York Times Magazine came out with a story that I have been telling parents about for the last decade. Recovery from Autism IS Possible. The piece, titled, “The Kids Who Beat Autism“, dispels the age old myth that nothing can be done for these children, that there’s no hope or no way out of autism. I am glad to see that people are finally “LISTENING” to me!

 

And I say “listen” because that is such an important piece to my daughter, Ashley’s, recovery. Without listening therapy (or sometimes auditory training as it is called), Ashley would most likely to this day still be non-verbal, non-social with a variety of sensory integration and auditory processing issues. BUT, early intervention is key to recovery and although the NY Times piece focused on ABA, Applied Behavioral Analysis, as the means to recovering the children in the article, Ashley didn’t have a lick of ABA. She had her ears retrain to perceive all the frequencies of sound using Mozart. Yes, Mozart recovered Ashley from Autism. And I write about it all in my book, “Awakening Ashley: Mozart Knocks Autism on its Ear”. To me, it’s important that people get the information they need to really help their child. And this book is raw, real and retells it as it unfolds. I give you everything we went through – the hard times, the great times, and even open up my rolodex and give you access to my therapy team I put together. The only label Ashley wears now, is the one in her clothes!

 

Nearly a decade after Ashley’s recovery, I have now developed my own listening program that is more technologically advanced than even what she got growing up, now with more psycho-acoustic effects that really tone up the middle ear muscles and change the brain – to teach it to learn new skills. Learn more about Lollipop Listening Therapy and how it can benefit your child.

 

It’s important for parents to realize that a diagnosis of autism isn’t a dead-end for these children. It may seem so at the beginning of the journey and the heartbreak a parent goes through is excruciating. I know…I’ve been there! But with hard work, dedication and many, many, many hours a week of therapy, and the right therapies, they can be retrieved and catch up and move forward down the road to developing normally and completely.Listening therapy should be on every parent’s radar of therapeutic options for their children. However “out-of-the-box” you think it is or if your doctor has never heard of it and “poo poo’s” it, you owe it to yourself and your child, to rise above their naivete and seek out listening therapy for your child. That is my ‘sound advice”.

Sesame Street To Help Make Public Aware About Autism!

AUTISM AWARENESS AROUND THE WORLD JUST GOT A “BIG” BOOST! 

THANKS BIG BIRD!

The world’s most famous yellow bird who teaches children on a level they can understand will now be reaching out to create more awareness amongst everyone about Autism and reduce the stigma surrounding kids on the spectrum.

 

The great minds behind Sesame Street are launching  a new initiative dubbed “See Amazing in All Children,” to create digital tools to help children with autism learn to play with others and complete everyday activities like brushing teeth, getting
dressed and trying new foods – to help them learn life skills.

 

 

The campaign will use Sesame Street’s brand and characters to educate the public about autism and emphasize that kids on the spectrum are much like their typically-developing peers.

 

 

As Autism is the most widely-discussed topic in childhood development, Sesame Street execs have found that there’s a lack of understanding among the general public about children with autism. With their organization having a long history of addressing diversity, acceptance and inclusion, their brand and character-friendly teaching can  play a critical role in reducing misconceptions by highlighting the commonalities children with autism share with all children.

“Your Child Has Autism!”

Posted on: March 30th, 2014 by

“Have you been on the receiving end of these words: “Your child has autism.  This is a lifelong disability.  They will never speak, learn, relate.   Prepare yourselves.  Consider an institution”.

 

It’s all too familiar to us parents who have heard these diagnosing words and whose lives were changed instantaneously as they rolled off the specialist’s tongue. Did you gasp for breath at that moment? Did you hold back the tears? Were you “numb” like I was? Did you even hear them correctly? Oh, you heard them correctly!

 

It’s all like a whirlwind of sorts trying to digest a diagnosis like that in addition to asking a million questions and then feeling helpless on the way out of the office and left to fend for yourself. Their part was over. Now the fight of your life begins! A fight with the school system, a fight with health insurance, a fight to secure private and public services in an effort to turn the ship around and steer it on a new path, a new course to improve speech, communication, socialization, behavior, attention and much more. You’ve got a lot of work in front of you

 

The CDC has now put autism at 1 in 68 children being diagnosed and 1 in 42 male births will result in autism. That’s  a 30% increase from 1 in 88 two years ago, according to a new report released Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That’s also beyond epidemic! It was epidemic a decade ago. Now it’s just plain unexplainable.

 

But what is ever present in these children diagnosed on the autism spectrum is their inability to “listen”. They may be able to “hear”, but their brain cannot process sound correctly, and therefore the output in the form of speech, sensory processing, auditory processing, behavior and other brain and body functions are sub-par.

 

Please learn how Lollipop Listening Therapy can change the course of direction for your child and put them on the road to meeting their milestones and becoming more age-appropriate.
