When Listening Comes Alive: A Guide to Effective Learning and Communication by Paul Madaule 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 energetic life.
Madaule demystifies The Tomatis Listening Method as both clinician and client. Diagnosed as dyslexic at an early age, Madaule experienced a remarkable recovery with the help of Dr. Alfred Tomatis. Since then, Paul Madaule has helped thousands of people for over twenty years.
In this book, he summarizes these methods and includes a unique selection of “Earobics,” daily exercises that allow development and improvement of listening skills. 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.
