mozartRecovering from Autism was possible for one little girl. All she needed was help from a musical genius...MOZART!


“This book needs to go out to everybody…absolutely everybody! It is HUGE!”

--Lisa Rinna, Hollywood Personality and TV Actress

 

“Listen Up! This remarkable story is for every person with a child waiting to be awakened to language and communication.”

--Don Campbell, Author of The Mozart Effect for Children

 

 "Awakening Ashley" is a remarkable, beautiful story written with insight and intelligence. Sharon lets parents know they an go through the ear when treating a child with Autism."

 --Michael Palmer, MD 15 time New York Times Bestselling Author of The Last Surgeon

We have a Lollipop Listening Therapy Support Group Facebook Page for all clients so be sure to go there and get great advice and chat with parents already doing Lollipop. I will be on there answering questions as well. It's great for you to hear all the wonderful exciting improvements coming straight from parents.

How Lollipop Works

This Listening Program Is Uniquely Different from Other Sound Therapies. It is Still Based on the Principles and Theories of Dr. Tomatis, but our Revolutionary and Updated Sound Engineering Techniques are Like No Other!

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.

 

Daily Listening

 

Daily listening on Lollipop can be accomplished in a quick 30 minutes a day, Monday thru Friday. 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™ and EAR-o-DYNAMICS™

 

 EAR Formula.jpg

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. 

 

 

Circuit Training Friday”™ (CTF).

 

On Fridays, the ear will be given a sort of “last chance” workout before the weekend called Circuit Training Friday”™ or CTF. CTF is a more intense program than Monday – Thursday. It is based on the way a muscle is exercised with bursts of training followed by spurts of rest. It is a logical protocol for the ear prior to the two-day rest on the weekend where the brain assimilates all of the week’s information and where the changes are most apparent. Circuit Training Friday™ is not offered in any other listening program and separates it from all of the other listening therapies on the market. Circuit Training Friday™ is only available in Lollipop Listening Therapy®

 

Lollipop Listening Therapy® will lay down the frequencies of the audible spectrum so that the brain can start making new neural pathways and reconnecting the listener with language and communication and enhancing sensory integration and auditory processing. There are two phases to listening therapy; a passive phase and an active phase.

 

 “Passive” Phase"

Lollipop Headphones

Lollipop Listening Therapy on swingLollipop begins with the “Passive Phase” that Dr. Tomatis described as taking the listener back to the time in the womb to set the stage for re-wiring. It is passive in the sense that the listener doesn’t really have to concentrate on the music. Headphones are worn by the child and the music does its job. The modulated music is acting upon the ear and the brain without the listener’s help whereas in the “Active Phase” (see below), the listener actively participates in the therapy with the use of their own voice.


 

 

 “Active” Phase"

 microphone-workWith the addition of a microphone, the listener can speak and hear his/her own voice back through the headphones. This is a very important phase in retraining the ears. Audio-vocal training uses the power of one's own voice to improve language, learning, communication and thinking skills. This "active" phase of the program uses "listen and repeat" exercises geared toward the listeners age-appropriate language. These lessons follow the developmental sequence of sound frequencies for language acquisition. The focus of this phase is verbal input and output and voice play. The listener is introduced and guided to experience new listening and speaking behaviors.

 

For non-verbal clients, we just want to capture their voice or their babbling or whatever comes out! It's a stimulus for their ear to keep producing language. So even if your child isn't quite verbal yet, the audio-vocal phase is still for them. For clients who are able, boyheadphones microhones"listen and repeat exercises", as well as "rehearsed reading", provide experience to establish new reading habits and patterns that will increase reading rate, accuracy and comprehension. Oral reading is practiced to reinforce new reading and language skills. Does your child have a monotone? They will learn how to work on intonation, expression and perfect their presentation voice. Begin to read now with excitement and color. Start using those exclamation marks and question marks and move the voice around as the reading or presentation requires.

 

Production of Lollipop Music

 

Lollipop Listening Therapy® music has very specialized digital processing techniques that render it therapeutic.  Neurosonic (or brain/sound) techniques enhanced within the music helps to re-educate the ear to listen. When the listener is taken through all of the frequencies of sound during this program, they stop in different auditory training zones of the audible spectrum to work on unique brain and body functions.

 

Filtration: Lollipop Listening Therapy® employs the use of filters on the music to separate frequency bands so that the listener’s attention is brought to a specific frequency zone while blocking out other frequency bands. This enables the listener to fine-tune their listening by allowing their ears to only focus on a particular band at a time so that the brain has a chance to make new neural connections and lay down new frequencies.

 

EAR-o-DYNAMICS: is a process that gives the music geometric motion providing an additional workout for the ear and brain

 Lollipop Notes

 

The "Active Phase" or Audio-vocal exercises can improve: intonation, expression, clarity, reading and reading comprehension, retention; listening; speech and language; fluency; alertness and attention to detail; thinking and problem solving; communication and social skills and academic achievement. Some Lollipop Listening Therapy packages contain just the "Passive" music, some contain the "Passive" music plus mother's filtered voice, and the top package contains the "Passive" music plus mother's filtered voice plus microphone work (audio vocal exercises) - this is the "Passive" and "Active" phases together. To get the full effect of listening therapy, it is best to train the ear and the voice together.
