A guide for parents of kids with developmental challenges seeking to improve concentration, speech, language, learning, motor skills and social development and ultimately to unlock their true potential. More
Consultant speech and language therapist Karen O'Connor describes how children with Autism, Auditory Processing Disorder, Dyspraxia and other developmental challenges make remarkable progress with music-based sound therapy. She describes how listening therapy helps these children to become calm and more regulated; how their attention and concentration improve allowing language and learning to develop. Children such as three-year-old Theo, who came to Karen with a diagnosis of autism, and who two years later was attending mainstream school without any additional supports. Or Raphael, who came to see her as 'a last resort' as he had very little speech and couldn't interact with others, now he's a fun-loving five year old who enjoys playing and chatting with his friends. Unlocking Your Child's Potential: Music is the Key is the first in a series of books that will give hope to parents by telling the stories of other wonderful children who overcame their varied developmental challenges with the use of music-based sound therapy.
