Letter from Harriet whose son has finished a Tomatis programme in Auckland. She writes:
My name is Harriet Epstein. I have a dyslexic son with audio processing complications. I came across the Tomatis Method a few months ago and was delighted to meet Maria whose work has been invaluable to his progress and development.
I took my son out of school last year and home schooled him for a couple of terms, as the education system was not meeting his needs. I feel very strongly that the Tomatis Method offered by Maria and Fredrik has been an integral part of his progress. (Published with permission.)
Listen to Melanie, a mother of two sons with Dyslexia, on her testimony on the Tomatis® Programme.
One of our sons had reading difficulties in school. He just wasn’t able to learn the traditional way that he was being taught even though we had him tested, and he had exceptional hearing and exceptional eyesight. So over the years he was falling behind in his reading and writing and everything at school. Even though the school was trying each year a different method of intervention, a different reading programme, or support and we even tried different programmes on our own but the result was that it left him confused, frustrated and eventually we noticed that his confidence was starting to erode and no parent wants to see that.
I found Maria from an internet search just after a friend had loaned me the book, When Listening Comes Alive and I just glanced through it quickly and the few points I read I knew that this was something that I had to research.
So I found Maria online, she answered the phone and it turns out that they were just unpacking their boxes from having moved to New Zealand. So I was as pleased to find her when she just stepped into the country as she was to have her first client phone her.
