Rachel Walker describes how much the Tomatis programme has helped her son Oliver who has a severe developmental delay caused by a rare partial chromosome deletion. The Rotary Club of Fiordland has funded the programme for Oliver whose progress is evident for everyone who knows him.
Oliver’s mother Rachel Walker said she thought that there was nothing to lose but potentially a lot to gain when she first heard about Tomatis therapy. “We noticed a change with Oliver’s speech in the first couple of days, he started to make new sounds” she says.
