Listening & Languages Who should attend the Tomatis® Training Program?

Professionals like psychologists, speech and occupational therapists, teachers, voice and singing teachers, and language teachers can now implement the Tomatis® Program in their practice in Australia, New Zealand, Islands of South Pacific and South East Asia.

The TOMATIS® Method is at the junction of two fundamental processes: listening and
communication.

Training in the TOMATIS® Method is intended for professionals who wish to incorporate an efficient and easy to use tool in their daily practice. Our method is designed for professionals of the therapeutic and health sectors, psychologists, teachers, and finally communication
and language professionals.

To undergo our training, participants must hold a university degree with a minimum of
three years' experience in a related field of application in one of the areas covered by
the TOMATIS® Method. Other profiles will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
To help you to easily access our method we propose an approach consisting
of three flexible and progressive stages. You can choose which of these levels
you want to reach. This choice depends on your background, your level of involvement, your personal approach and your financial investment. Each level is independent. Therefore, you can practice our method from the first stage onwards.

STAGE 1: BECOME A TOMATIS® LEVEL 1 PRACTITIONER AND INCORPORATE SOLISTEN® IN YOUR EXISTING PRACTICE

This first stage provides an initial 4-day training course to learn about the TOMATIS®
Method. You are trained to use SOLISTEN® in your field of expertise with your customers.

This highly practical course is supplemented by a continued training online each month to assist you in introducing this technology into your work. It gives you the opportunity to become familiar with our equipment and to appreciate the efficiency they provide for a moderate investment. Better still, the cost of the equipment is generally recovered after your third customer. So you combine efficiency with immediate profitability.

To facilitate the selection of appropriate programs, SOLISTEN® is preconfigured in the
standard version. Like many of your colleagues, you can choose to increase your
volume of activity by increasing the number of SOLISTEN® devices.

STAGE 2 (optional): ADD TO YOUR EVALUATION TOOLS WITH THE LISTENING TEST DEVICE (TLTS) AND THE ACTIVE PART OF THE METHOD WITH TALKS (TOMATIS® ACTIVE LISTENING KEY SYSTEM)

This tool is necessary if you want to further evaluate a subject’s listening profile and to
refine your programming based on it. Over a second 4-day training course, you learn
to conduct a listening test and use it as part of your programming. The listening test
also serves as a tool to assess results and thus to optimise your work.
You also get to be trained in using the active part of the Method with the use of a microphone (TALKS) to help to create the audio-vocal loop for better results.

STAGE 3 (optional): BECOME A TOMATIS® ONSULTANT


This final stage allows you to develop a genuine expertise in the TOMATIS® Method
and to use all the available parameters to individualise your work. You receive rigorous
training by experienced consultants.

information. After assessing your client’s needs, you are able to choose the suitable
program among the preconfigured choices without difficulty. Your clients can easily do
their program of 20 to 26 two-hour listening sessions wherever they go.

ADD TO YOUR ASSESSMENT TOOLS WITH THE LISTENING TEST DEVICE

THE PRODUCT

Although its roots are in audiometry, the listening test is a fully separate test. Its purpose is to determine how the individual communicates with others.

The test is made up of a series of subtests, the synthesis of which results in the elaboration of curves called the listening profile. This listening profile is specific to each person.

It is extremely simple to do the test, since it consists in the subject responding either
manually or orally – depending on the subtest – to acoustic stimuli perceived through
headphones that transmit sound by air conduction and bone conduction. Each ear is
tested in turn. On average the entire test lasts about one quarter of an hour to half an hour.

The listening test evaluates an individual’s auditory thresholds in terms of frequency,
ability to identify the source of sounds, ability to discriminate between frequencies, and
auditory laterality. The analysis of the resulting curves serves to determine the person’s quality of listening and from this to induce a psychological profile. The listening test thus allows to determine how an individual communicates with him/herself as well as with the outside world. The National Centre for Scientific Research in France (CNRS) is currently conducting research on this subject.

PRODUCTS

• The Tomatis® Audio Pro (TAP)

Our latest generation of machines is equipped with the most up-to-date digital audio
technology using highly reliable hardware standard combined with a flexible software
configuration.
Called the TOMATIS® Audio Pro (TAP), this device is designed to simultaneously manage several Electronic Ears thanks to a robust and powerful multiprocessor. Equipped with a complete software package, the device enables the consultant to customize the settings for each client using a simple and intuitive interface with multiple programming combinations and pinpoint accuracy. The TAP is a tool reserved to TOMATIS® Consultants to work in an institute with all the parameters used in the TOMATIS® Method.

• THE SOLISTEN® TC

Compared to the standard format, the SOLISTEN® TC offers a wider selection of
programmes. This choice is however smaller than that proposed by the TAP. It has all
the functions of the TOMATIS® Method except the active principle* and can be used to do the listening programmes at home. It is also reserved to TOMATIS® Consultants.

* The active principle is a procedure designed for the TAP, used to modulate the subject’s voice in real time. During a reading session or repetition exercise, the subject hears his or her own voice modified in relation to the parameters of the TOMATIS® effect. The subject learns to listen better.
The voice instantly develops timbre and diction becomes more precise.

Our trainers are strongly experienced in the field of Audio-Psycho-Phonology. While
passionate about our method, they view it objectively and even critically, as is necessary in order to fully understand its strengths and its limitations.
Although our courses are precise and rigorous, they remain pedagogical and
accessible. In addition, they include practical modules facilitating the assimilation of
knowledge with lively and exciting teaching.

OUR RESULTS ARE INDISPUTABLE
Our method is based on established principles now accepted by the scientific
community. A wide range of research and studies have confirmed our results. To these
scientific results we add the compelling feedback from our clients. We are proud to
count among our partners and clients the renowned Warsaw Institute of Physiology
and Pathology of the Ear, the Polish Ministry of Education, as well as the French
