I knew that the knitting I picked up a year ago made me more relaxed and happier….today I found out that it has probably made me smarter. 31 WAYS TO GET SMARTER IN 2012
"My son Erik was a struggling reader all through elementary school. Erik started auditory intervention at Boost Listening Center in the fifth grade. When Erik started he was reading at a fourth grade level, and when he finished was reading on a 9th grade level. Erik is in the 6th grade and has been on the Honor Roll for the first two semesters. He loves school now. Math and Science are his favorite subjects. I believe that if it was not for Boost Listening Center and Liz he would be far behind the other 6th graders."
"I have Boost Listening Center to thank for helping my son, who has been diagnosed with mild autism to become more confident and a better communicator. He now speaks up more and is more clear in his speech. He has begun to look at people when he talks and initiate conversations. This is a big accomplishment!"
"Our daughter was adopted in the US, from a state adoption agency, at the age of seven. She is not from a foreign country. She has a history of sexual abuse, neglect, loss, abandonment, and in-utero drug exposure. Her educational and emotional challenges are significant. Counseling continues and is slowly helping. In one year, we have spent over twenty thousand dollars on professional tutors for our daughter and the intervention yielded minimal improvement. Prior to the Boost Program in 2008, we had exhausted every resource we could find in an attempt to help our daughter. We sought professional evaluations at local Children's Hospitals, in and out of state specialists, and Ph.D. psychologists recommendations, programs, etc.none of them helped and none of them recommended the Tomatis based program offered through Boost Listening Center."
"Prior to the Boost Listening Center program, at age eleven, homework was agony for us and our daughter. The work was so challenging that she would cry, argue, refuse to tryjust essentially shut down. Unfortunately, that behavior were our daughter's response to every challenge in her lifenot just homework, games with friends and peer relations were also impacted. Homework still takes a long time and our daughter is still in resource class, but her disposition no longer causes her such pain. Overall, she is a happy now and has a relatively normal/sunny disposition. The crying, arguing, and refusal to try has disappeared from all areas of her life. We believe she is now in a place where maybe she can learn and heal with her therapist's continued support. The Boost Listening Center is the only thing that has helped our daughter and we recommend the program without reservation."
