Where we have been helping people with sensory processing disorders navigate their world more efficiently and effectively for the past 27 years
But this can be changed!
The Spectrum Center Method (SCM) uses technologies that re-engineer how the brain pays attention. This transforms how a person “takes in,” “processes,” and “organizes” sensory and non-sensory data, into hierarchies of awareness and consciousness that I call BUILD A MIND.
At the Line in the above graphic, sitting between input and output, is the Human generative function Praxis – it is as unique to our species as language. In fact, symbolic language is dependent on Praxis.
The key to doing this is to restore normal sensory processing
What makes the Spectrum Center Method unique is that it works on a pre-cognitive level. This is the bottom – at the level of awareness itself. With the Spectrum Center Method, we are training the brain how to pay attention! Before we can form perceptions, concepts, beliefs, ideas, or even opinions, (all the things that make-up our mental universe), we first have to know what to and how to pay attention. This is core to how the brain operates.
- Attention Deficit Disorders,
- Auditory Processing Disorders
- Sensory Processing
- Visual and Auditory based Learning Disabilities,
- Memory Enhancement for Aging, and Alzheimer’s,
- Performance Enhancement.
- People working in the consciousness field who want to become better manifestors.
The delivery of the Spectrum Center Method involves two aspects.
The technology: The Spectrum Center Method is presently delivered through an electronic device that is based on A. A. Tomatis’ pioneering work, which trains the “ear” how to pay attention in a new and more efficient manner.
Programing: The programing is how the above technology is employed and this is unique to the Spectrum Center Method. There are 25 years of comparison to show that the Spectrum Center is achieving different results in the area of praxis and symbolic intelligence than other centers employing the Tomatis Method or stand alone sensory integration therapy to say that the Spectrum Center Method is it’s own brand.
The Spectrum Center Method is the highest quality program on the market to re-engineer how the brain processes information transforming how the mind operates and is able to implement its intentions.
What a remarkable thing, this species Homo sapiens is. We are so embedded in being “us” that we hardly recognize what a unique creature we humans truly are. Somehow, on our blue planet, something occurred, in our species that was a radical break from anything else occurring in nature. If a zoologist from Alpha Centauri were to arrive and start the process of classifying all the species on the planet, we would correctly be lumped with primates, with whom we share ninety nine percent of our genes. Oh but what a difference that one percent makes. It allows us our capacity for imagination and invention. Only we as a species can imagine that we might go to the moon and then design the rockets to get us there. Only humans have been able to break free of our physiology and act knowingly (consciously) upon our environments in ever more complex ways. Our ability to imagine and envision is founded in our ability to be self-conscious or self-aware. This capacity for self-awareness and to use that awareness to direct our outward behavior in novel ways, appropriate to the situations we encounter, has allowed us to move beyond our biology of instincts and hardwired behaviors.
Consciousness lays the foundation for self-reflection, the capacity to invent, and the capacity to be symbolic. Everything else that is unique to us as a species is the byproduct of this ability. From our ability to fashion tools, domesticate animals, teach and train others, communicate with small mouth movements, to our capacity to create art, music, religions and philosophize about our existence; all these are dependent on our capacity for self-reflecting consciousness. Without it we wouldn’t have culture, for self-reflecting consciousness is really the wellspring that creates culture. The whole human enterprise would never have gotten off the ground without consciousness and the sense of self that imbibes it. Without it, we wouldn’t be human. VMD 2006
I call these my lessons from Autism because they developed as I watched children emerge from the non-symbolic mind of Autism to the symbolic mind of the human race. I’m not seeing anyone talking about this, let alone anyone possessing technologies to change this. So the Spectrum Center Method is really an anthropological approach to human evolution and human development.
