Auditory Training Program™
neurocare’s Auditory Training Program™ uses electronically modified music and language to stimulate auditory pathways and enhance auditory neural plasticity. The program employs a series of intervention techniques to assist and improve auditory processing abilities. (This service is available in our Hawthorn clinic)
Modulating brain activity through sound
While you physically hear with your ears, your brain has to process any sounds and make sense of them – essentially your brain and ears are working in tandem.
Auditory training strengthens your brain’s auditory processing capability to improve the skills you need for language development, phonological processing (required for literacy development), and the processing of auditory information.
- Auditory Figure Ground Differentiation
The ability to pick out important sounds from a noisy background
- Auditory Closure
Understanding when parts of spoken information are missing or distorted
- Binaural Separation and Integration
The ability to deal with multiple streams of auditory/verbal information simultaneously
- Understanding rapid speech
Comprehension of fast speech
- Auditory Memory
Remembering things we hear in both the short and long term
- Auditory Attention
The ability to focus selectively on specific sounds

How does Auditory Training work?
neurocare’s Auditory Training Program™ integrates our specialist intervention techniques with leading Besson-of-Switzerland technology, providing a comprehensive approach to auditory processing difficulties.
We utilise world-leading technology based on the collaborative work of Christophe Besson and Dr Alfred Tomatis. This incorporates the clarity of 24-bit music to deliver state-of-the-art auditory training.
