Therapeutic listening may be beneficial if a child has concerns in the following areas:
  • Hypersensitivity to things he or she touches, tastes, sees or hears. 
  • Hypersensitivities to balance and special relationships with other people and objects. 
  • Has difficulty regulating him/herself, such as having difficulty falling or staying asleep. 
  • Difficulty identifying the sources of sounds in environment.
  • Difficulty looking and listening at the same time.
  • Difficulty with coordinating movement on both sides of the body at the same time.
  • Lack of coordination (appearing clumsy).

  • Difficulty making eye contact.
  • Difficulty interpreting or expressing appropriate facial and body language.
  • Difficulty understanding the emotions of others.
