This website was put together as a result of a parent wanting to share knowledge with others of her sons condition that was affecting his ability to participate in every day life. Together with her Occupational Therapist the information on the following pages was formed.
We are supported by the SPD Foundation in the US, Dr Lucy Jane Miller.
We hope you find this information helpful.

Advanced Brain Technologies announces that a ground breaking new study provides more evidence that music listening therapy is a valuable intervention for sensory issues related to Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
Sensory processing disorder (SPD), defined by the study as an inability to process “incoming sensory stimuli, determine its meaning, and generate a response consistent with the context,” is a common component of ASD. In addition, sensory over-responsivity (SOR) is a subtype of SPD that makes it difficult for a person to process and use information they receive through their senses.
The research published in International Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation was conducted at Idaho State University by Bryan Gee, Kelly Thompson, Aaron Pierce, Megan Toupin, and Jennifer Holst suggests that a commercially available product called The Listening Program® (TLP) can be beneficial therapy for people experiencing auditory SOR.
“We are extremely pleased to see this study added to the growing body of evidence that supports the use of The Listening Program® for reducing sensory sensitivities in children on the autism spectrum
We are proud to present Channel 7’s Today Tonight’s exclusive interview with Tracey Butler, the Director of Links To Learning, an Adelaide & Brisbane based practice, which utilizes The Listening Program. The interview explores Sensory and Auditory Processing Difficulties and how The Listening Program can help benefit individuals who are faced with these challenges.
