Sound
Stimulation

Project

Sound Stimulation is an educational and therapeutic practice, that aims to give concrete tools to improve the life quality of people through the exploration of sound and listening.

This innovative inclusive methodology of artistic education is based on play, creativity, interaction and human connection.

Through body language and deep listening we provide new tools creating new language codes that support people’s development.

What’s a being devoted to listening? Formed by it or in it? who listens with all its being?

Programmes

We offer the programme of sound stimulation to students with special needs, especially those within the Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and pervasive developmental disorder (PDD). We also offer a programme for students in the educational system, whether public or private. We have created a special programme to support further development for teachers, and also provide individual therapy to the people that require it.

It involves all areas of life such as: sensory integration, life competencies, autonomy, development of communicational skills and new forms of language, as well as creating strong meaningful bonds with attuned adults.
