Earlier this year the publisher of SI Focus Magazine- Kathleen E. Morris, MS, CCC/SLP invited me to write an article on The Listening Program® method of music-based auditory stimulation for their Spring 2008 Issue. The article touches on the role of the auditory system in the regulation of social engagement. It also explores the use of The Listening Program as an intervention that has demonstrated improvements in social engagement for children on the autism spectrum.
The close of the article includes a case summary of a young boy called Michael who I am fortunate to have met. It is children like Michael that make our work at ABT so meaningful.
We recently received re-print permission so I thought I would share the article here. I look forward to your comments.
