In June 2009 The Sound Learning Centre were privileged to be invited to one of the FARA children’s homes in Bucharest to give assessments and treatments for Auditory Integration Training (AIT) and Lightwave Stimulation (LWS) to a group of young adults. This group had only very recently been relocated from state institutions into FARA’s care.
After 10 days of sound and light therapy it was heart-warming to see the changes developing in all members of the group. These changes manifested in a variety of ways, including better eye contact, more vocalisation, improved posture and greater self confidence. One of the group, Gabriela who had never spoken a word or even uttered a sound has now started to speak some words. Overall, individuals were better able to focus and concentrate, so much so, that they were able to participate actively in a practical skills workshop in candle making with Pauline and Phil, which demonstrated their improved ability to listen and learn, and emulate skills.
You can read more about Gabriela, one of the young people we treated, in the FARA Newsletter, simply scroll down to page 4 to the heading ‘FARA CHANGES LIVES...’ 'Gabriela, formerly mute, is now able to talk....'
At the end of the Outreach programme Pauline delivered the SenseAbility course to a number of FARA staff in Romania as well as responding to an invitation to give a talk at the Bioresonance Conference at the Faculty of Biology in Bucharest.
We are delighted to say that all of the young people have continued to make progress since our visit and we remain in contact via telephone and webcam. We would like to offer our heartfelt thanks to all the incredibly dedicated staff of FARA, both in the UK and in Romania for such a warm welcome and for all their time and assistance during our visit.
