The Open Ear Listening Program is auditory training for individuals with learning and listening difficulties. We offer two programs, a home-based Tomatis Program and the Listening Fitness Program (LiFT). In addition we consult on prescriptive musical strategies to support behavior, learning, personal wellness and the development of better listening and communication skills.


Since 1991, OEC has worked nationally with children and adults offering ongoing programs in the Tomatis Method of auditory stimulation and the Listening Fitness Training Program, a Tomatis-based class and/or home monitored program. We work with children and adults nationwide through home-monitored programs. The initial consult and specific needs of each individual is assessed, goals are discussed and then a listening program is designed to fit specific needs.


Initial phone consultations, long distance and in person assessments are necessary to participate in these programs. Consultations for home programs are offered throughout the year in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Seattle and other national settings each year. 


Each program consists of specially developed and modified music, an electronic listening device, MP3 and microphone, headsets delivering both bone and airconduction stimulation, special voice techniques and individually designed programs. Home programs are closely monitored by a listening facilitator.
