Dr. Tomatis is an ENT specialist who spent years researching the importance of the ears as a vital sensory control system. He surmised and proved that ears absorbs all sensory inputs, helps brain in evaluating the inputs and transmitting it accurately to your body. Your eyes can see and your voice can produce only if your ear is able to perceive correctly. Thus, the ear-communication nexus starts in your womb.

It is on record that Tomatis therapy for a child with autism, aims at stimulating certain sections of the brain that is inactive. In other words, it turns on part of the brain that is turned off, in order to kick start the brain.

Children with autism use their left side to listen and Tomatis therapy tries to change that to make them use the right side because a bulk of our auditory functions like listening, processing, timely response, cognition, analyzing and others are performed speedily when you are predominantly a right side listener.
