A Guide to Effective Communication
“Madaule’s listening program helped our two-year-old developmentally delayed daughter more than any other therapy we’ve tried. After the first two week session, she walked unaided and gestured, both for the first time, and the therapy continues to help her.”
- Daniel S. Spitzer, MD Neurosurgeon
In When Listening Comes Alive, Paul Madaule re-awakens a skill that each of us has - a skill that can improve communication, creativity and learning ability, allowing a fuller and more elegant life.
Madaule demystifies The Tomatis Listening Method as both clinician and client. Diagnosed as a dyslexic at an early age, Madaule experienced a remarkable recovery with the help of Dr. Alfred Tomatis. Since then, at The Tomatis Listening Centre in Toronto, Paul Madaule has helped thousands of people for over twenty years. Madaule has summarized these methods and has included a unique section of “Earobics,’ daily exercises that will allow you to develop and improve your listening skills on your own. This is a book about listening at all stages of life - for parents-to-be, hard-working professionals, teachers, early childhood educators and parents seeking help for learning disabled children or difficult teenagers. When Listening Comes Alive is a guide to a healthier, more holistic way of living.
“An unusual, fascinating work, educational, eminently practical, and a valuable addition to our knowledge of the development of children and adults. Something in it for everyone.”
- Joseph Chilton Pearce, author of The Magical Child
“Parents, teachers, professionals and the general public will enjoy Madaule’s fascinating guided tour on this ‘journey into the world of listening.’ It’s a gift of discovery and hope for anyone who has struggled with learning or communication difficulties.”
-Tim Gilmor, Ph.D., Psychologist
