Tomatis® Sound Training – Level 1
When: Live Online from March 4, 2024
It was 60 years ago that French otolaryngologist (MD. ENT), Alfred Tomatis® observed that humans can have good hearing, but poor listening. Hearing is the passive reception of sound. Listening is the act of processing sensory information and translating it into something the brain can understand. Becoming a Tomatis® practitioner assists you in understanding the learning potential of the human brain as well as impacting on the sensory adaptive response in a powerful way. Though no tool has been found to be a “cure” of anything, Tomatis® Sound Therapy is a sensory regulatory tool that supports primarily at the very foundation of self-regulation, with a strong secondary impact on praxis, language and executive functioning. This online workshop consists of recorded videos to be viewed as well as 6 live online sessions (2 hours each time) with the trainer to have group discussion and Q and A. This program of sound training still contains all the original parameters in technologically advanced systems. Tomatis® Sound Training can be used across all ages and stages with multiple diagnostic categories and can be used safely at home or at a school or therapy center. An application for CPD points has been filed in South Africa.

Yes. Thank you! The training has so much information. So essential afterwards to consider the theory application in a holistic way through real life cases. It is also a safe place to ask questions and be vulnerable about what you do not know/need clarification on. The group dynamic is very supportive and encouraging.

Maude has a talent to take very complicated concepts, breaking them down and explaining it really well and showing where it fits into your current body of knowledge and practise.

Maude is a very capable communicator and is able to share her very expansive subject expertise and experience in an excellent way. I enjoy how Maude adds examples and also talks to the subject rather than just reading back what is written on the PowerPoint. All participant questions are addressed and acknowledged.

Maude has a gift of sharing her extensive knowledge in an organised sequential manner that joins dots and leads to greater understanding and insights. Her courses always leave me feeling inspired! Thank you, Maude.
