TLP Testimonials

Roger just completed 20 weeks of The Listening Program! Time… well worth it! He has shown more focus, where in the past would tend to lack it; for example, the 2nd half of school day. He has drastically improved overall in academics as well as motivated now to play in group sports! He will continue to use the program for maintenance. I believe it has 100% helped in many ways! This music has in a way become part of our day. Background music in am/ pm even to help through long car rides! Thanks CTC for this education in music and how it relates to our children who need a little extra love!

-Christine R

Within three weeks of my son starting to use The Listening Program, he started to follow directions at school and at home so much better. He would actually look at me when I was speaking to him. His therapist also noticed a positive change in his behavior and his ability to tolerate tasks that he would previously have had tantrums to get out of participating. By the time he had finished the program, he had met all of his IEP goals half way though the school year. We had another IEP meeting to create new educational and therapy goals. My husband and I are so happy we purchased The Listening Program. It was the jump start my son and we needed. He has continued to use the program to assist him with learning he next set of skills he needs.

We created a “car wash” recently at CTC and the kids had a blast riding through the various pool noodle designs on scooter boards, tricycles and other push toy devices. Parents can easily create a car wash outside on the side walk for the kids in the neighborhood. You will encourage socialization, improve motor planning and coordination all while the kids have a great time!
Check out Pintrerest for some great backyard fun with pool noodles. A fun, easy and inexpensive way to transform backyard fun!
