The cause of learning difficulties in children is often a question that haunts parents. The existence of learning difficulties and learning barriers experienced by children will have an impact or can be seen on the learning achievements achieved by the children. Learning difficulties are basically a problem that causes a child to not be able to follow the learning process properly like other students in general due to certain factors so that he is late or even unable to achieve the learning goals properly as expected.
Therapeutic Listening is an auditory program aimed at supporting individuals who experience challenges with communication, listening, and attention. The child or adult is exposed to filtered music in order to stimulate the nervous system with low and high sounds at different intervals. These help to strengthen communication between the ears and the brain for better processing abilities and stimulation for behavioral and emotional growth.
In the recent months, Singapore Brain Development Centre has received an increase in the number of enquiries from parents of special needs children in the areas of their children’s developmental issues.
8/10 of the parents, who believed in Singapore Brain Development Centre’s Brain Training programs, have children who have Sensory Processing Issues. Sensory processing disorder is a sort of `traffic jam’ in the brain. Some bits of sensory information get `tied up in traffic,’ and certain parts of the brain do not get the sensory information they need to do their jobs.” (Ayres, p. 51)
Parents, the truth is… waiting for your child to “grow out of” learning, reading, or attention difficulties is not really an option. Learning problems rarely go away with time. On the contrary, waiting and hoping a problem will go away without appropriate intervention will only lead to frustration, poor grades, low motivation, and time wasted in school.
