It can be something as widely feared as dyslexia, or another form of impairment that makes academics difficult. In any case, learning disabilities are often badly misunderstood as signs of a terrible future for the child.
In reality though, there is more hope now than before. Experts are discovering new insights into learning disabilities and improve the success of early intervention. Academic progress is still within reach and this webinar gives some examples as to how.
Tomatis® Australia has been in the field of assisting neurodiverse children for over 40 years. We tackle various issues, including learning disabilities.
On October 16, we will be hosting a free webinar on Dyslexia and other learning disabilities while explaining how our work with the Tomatis® Method has given us insights on improving treatments.
The speaker, Françoise Nicoloff, is a French-Australian psychologist with 40 years of experience. Her presentation will not only tackle the possible causes of these learning disabilities but also how new, technological advances are improving tried-and-true treatments.

"My daughter was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome when she was four, in 1995. Since that time we have undergone intensive “therapy”, speech and occupational, and she attended an early intervention centre for 12 months prior to attending school. We are currently in the final stages of a 5 week program of the Tomatis Method (Jan-Mar 97) which has involved 2 hours/day, 5 days a week.
During the course of the program I have noticed small but noticeable changes in several areas:
1. Physical: Her co-ordination has improved, she has a better sense of balance and her handwriting has improved.
2. Emotional: She has become “empathetic” and seems to enjoy the company of her siblings more.
3. Social: She is better able to participate in family discussion and respond appropriately. Overall, I feel my daughter has more confidence in her ability to function in her environment, which has lead to an increased self-esteem. Reading tasks and drawing are now more readily embarked."
