Ideal course of listening therapy

  1. Initial listening therapy of 12 days – break of 6 to 9 weeks
  2. Follow up of 5 days – break of 6 to 9 weeks
  3. Follow up of 5 days – break of 6 to 9 weeks
  4. if necessary, more follow up therapy until the goal has been reached
 
During listening therapy, listening tests are performed at regular intervals in order to plan subsequent therapy. One listening unit lasts 30 minutes. A day of listening therapy consists of three therapy sessions of 3 listening units each (= 4.5 hours of listening training daily). During listening therapy, listeners can sleep, relax or work creatively (paint, draw, do puzzles, handicrafts etc.). Reading, writing, eating, talking, watching television, computer games etc. have a counterproductive effect.
 
The resting phases between the week-long or two week-long listening sessions are important for the long-term integration of new impulses and improvements achieved. They are to be understood as a time of maturing and are thus important to the success of the therapy.
