Alise is a child with special needs, developmental disorders and a rare genetic Cornelia de Lange Syndrome, which is not yet fully studied, and only 3 cases of such disease were registered in Latvia among children. Musical therapy Tomatis is being used in order to diminish little girl’s mental and physical developmental disability, as well as her serious speech disabilities. The Tomatis method affects muscle tonus and has effect on plasticity of neural circuits, which are responsible for the decoding of sound and its analysis in the brain. This method does not entirely eliminate those problems, but it helps to overcome them more effectively.
