Are You Worried Your Child Has Problems With Auditory Processing?
As a parent, it can sometimes be overwhelming when you suspect your child is struggling, but you don’t know why.

Symptoms like bad behaviour and difficulty learning are often vague, so it can be difficult to pinpoint the exact cause. However, if your child exhibits any of these symptoms, auditory processing problems could be to blame.

What are auditory processing problems?

​An easy way to understand auditory processing problems is to think of it as a sort of dyslexia of hearing.

​Under normal circumstances, speech travels through the ear to the language area of the brain, where it is interpreted. In a person with auditory processing difficulties, however, when the information gets to the brain it’s not processed correctly, resulting in confusion and time delays.

In the same way someone with dyslexia can have good vision, a child with auditory processing difficulties can have perfectly good hearing. The problem is not the quality or clarity of the sound – it’s the way the brain interprets the information that causes problems. The words are essentially “lost in translation”.
Why is it so hard to diagnose?

Auditory processing problems produce similar and overlapping symptoms to conditions like dyslexia, autism, ADD, ADHD, and even psychological or physical illnesses. If the root cause is auditory processing, the real problem is often misdiagnosed and not dealt with effectively.

Additionally, a child can have auditory processing problems and other conditions at the same time to further complicate things.

What can be done?

Once an Auditory Processing difficulty is suspected and medical issues have been addressed, there are several options available to manage auditory processing issues such as using hearing aids or applying "strategies" to avoid problematic situations.

The Tomatis® Method focuses on the root cause.

Meet Your Presenter


​Maria Moell Lundqvist is a Tomatis® Consultant Level 4 and the Tomatis® Head Teacher in New Zealand.

Maria pioneered the Tomatis® Method in Scandanavia in 1998 and is now introducing it in New Zealand since 2012.

She is based in Auckland and travels regularly to other parts of the country to teach and mentor new Tomatis® Practitioners. She works one-on-one with select clients in her private practice.

“My goal is to train 500 professionals in the Tomatis® Method in the coming 5 years to be able to help 50,000 children and adults to happier and more successful lives every year” she says.

What is the Tomatis® Method?

The Tomatis® Method was developed by the French ear-nose-throat specialist, Dr Alfred A. Tomatis (1920–2001), based on his research for more than 60 years. His inventions include the Tomatis® Electronic Ear and the Tomatis® Listening Test.

The Tomatis® Method is a structured and well-defined auditory stimulation that uses classical music – mainly Mozart and Gregorian Chant – and the human voice to re-train and re-activate neural pathways via bone and air transmitted sound.

It is a natural, non-invasive, drug free and joyful training programme designed to enhance existing abilities and overcome listening-related problems. It works for both adults and children and has many application areas. Tomatis® New Zealand has expertise to cover them all.
So how does it work?
This 3 minute video shows how listening to the modulated Tomatis® music in specially designed headphones affects not only the ears but also the different parts of the brain. Tomatis® takes the brain by surprise and encourages development. It is a transformational brain training method.

Seem to have difficulty hearing the direction of sounds?
Have trouble remembering things and seem unusually disorganised?
While these signs do not conclusively point to auditory processing difficulties, the appearance of one or more suggests your child could be having trouble making sense of auditory information.

As a parent, it can sometimes be overwhelming when you suspect your child is struggling but you don’t know why. Unfortunately, many parents give in to societal pressure and resort to medication or are told the problems will go away.
The fact is that auditory processing difficulties are real. It will not get better by addressing behaviour issues through discipline—the problems are not a result of bad parenting or a naughty child. 

So, trust your instincts. If you suspect auditory processing difficulties cause problems for your child, take the next step now and get more information.
