At ‘Links to Learning’, we offer a drug-free, non-invasive approach, which can help children with development delays, learning difficulties, sensory and auditory processing problems. Hear first hand from these Parents and Children how we helped them.
To find out whether your child may benefit from our help, we need an initial consultation, this will give you the opportunity to ask questions concerning your child and discuss any particular problems.
Investment for this is
$195 for Children under 5 or who have limited verbal skills
$295 for Children over 5 who are verbal. This consultation would additionally include formal Auditory Processing Evaluation using one or all of the following:
- Test for Auditory Processing Disorders in Children (SCAN-3) The Scan-3 is a screening assessment tool which tests how well the individual performs specific auditory processing skills with each ear under challenging auditory conditions.
- Test of Auditory Processing Skills (TAPS) Memory sub tests. TAPS screens auditory short-term memory and auditory working memory.
- TAVS The Test of Auditory and Visual Processing Skills
- SAST South Australian Spelling Test
- BURT Reading Word Test
- Holborn Reading Scale
On completion of this evaluation recommendations will be given regarding the most suitable program for your child. This will include one or more of the following programs.
The Listening Program
THE LEVEL ONE LISTENING PROGRAM can typically be adapted to suit most listeners. It provides support to individuals experiencing challenges with;
- Speech & language
- Auditory processing
- Reading & spelling
With individualized programming the best possible outcome is optimized with both Classical music only, and music blended with beautiful sounds of nature.
THE SPECTRUM LISTENING PROGRAM is a foundational program created for individuals with sensory sensitivities.
SPECTRUM is typically most suited to;
- Those on the Autism Spectrum
- Those with a Brain Injury
- Aged or Elderly
- Those with Sensory sensitivity
- Spectrum is very gentle for a sensitive or underdeveloped CNS
THE ACHIEVE LISTENING PROGRAM is an intermediate to experienced level program developed for older children, teens, and adults seeking changes in;
ACHIEVE increases mental performance by training the brain with evidence-based music to process information more efficiently.
THE INTIME LISTENING PROGRAM is a dynamic, rhythm-based music program created for anyone looking for changes in;
- rhythm awareness
- adaptive responses to stress
inTime provides listening training and fun movement activities, using body, drum, and voice.
All programs are delivered via Headphones with the choice of standard ABT Approved Air Conduction Headphones or the Advanced System Waves Multi Sensory Air and Bone Conduction Headphones.

The Movement Program
The Movement Program is a streamed exercise program that has a sequence of progressive movements delivered over a twelve-week period. Developed in collaboration between Leigh Academies Trust and Learning Solutions in the United Kingdom, it has been shown to significantly improve reading age and English results as well as balance, coordination, and the inhibition of primitive reflexes.
Your child follows the students on the video and completes the activities each day
The Movement Program is based on many years of research which proves progress in learning outcomes is achieved by improving areas such as:
- Literacy Skills & Writing Skills
- Attention and Concentration
- Self Confidence
- Stress reduction and relaxation
- Visual skills of tracking, fixation, near and far focus, binocular vision
- Improved beat and rhythm leading to:
- Improved awareness of grammar,
- Significant reading progress
- Improved listening
- Better music ability
- Improved performance in sport
- Balance, co-ordination and vestibular development,
- Gross and fine motor skills,
- Hand / eye co-ordination,
- Midline crossing,
- Proprioception – the ability to sense the position, location and orientation of the body and its parts,
- Spatial awareness
- Improved emotional regulation,
The Leigh Academies Trust has conducted extensive trials since 2003 in both Secondary and Primary Schools and found The Movement Program helps to improve learning ability, educational progress and improves GCSE examination results.
Sleep matters. Lack of sleep comes with a high cost to our ability to learn, our health and safety, and quality of life. Most people don’t get enough sleep.
In the short term, a lack of adequate sleep can affect judgment, mood, ability to learn and retain information, and may increase the risk of serious accidents and injury. In the long term, chronic sleep deprivation may lead to a host of health problems including, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, depression, and obesity.
The Listening Program® SLEEP is an auditory sleep aid that you listen to while you’re going to sleep.
With technology created by a neuroscientist, TLP SLEEP uses nearly-inaudible sounds embedded in beautiful music created to help you go to sleep faster and stay asleep longer.
TLP SLEEP triggers the motion-induced sleepiness that babies experience while being rocked and that most people feel while riding as a passenger in a car or train. The music simultaneously entrains the brain to the slower brainwave rhythms needed to sleep. This combination results in a sleep that’s natural, easy, restful and refreshing. The technology behind The Listening Program® SLEEP is based on over 15 years of research in hearing, balance, and sleep by neuroscientist Seth Horowitz, Ph.D. It is a new approach to helping people of any age go to sleep more quickly and stay asleep longer. TLP SLEEP uses three kinds of sound that work directly on the brain in different ways.
1. Very low frequency sounds activate the vestibular system to trigger Sopite syndrome, the motion-induced sleepiness that babies experience while being rocked and that most people feel while riding as a passenger in a car or on a train.
2. Quiet “pink” noise shaped to match the sound signatures of heartbeats and breathing reduces activity in the brain’s arousal centers to encourage relaxation.
3. Binaural beats — slightly different sound frequencies delivered to each ear to trigger frequency-following response between the brain’s hemispheres — help the brain match the waveforms that characterize the stages of sleep.
The sleep-inducing technology embedded within the acoustically modified music created for TLP SLEEP uses all three methodologies.
Ad-hoc clinical testing has demonstrated the effectiveness of these algorithms in inducing sleep by reducing sleep latency and increasing efficiency in subjects ranging in age from 1 to 62, and has been shown to decrease sleep latency, increase sleep efficiency or both in up to 77% of people with normal binaural hearing.
