enlisten® software was developed by dr. kirk d. thompson following the research of dr. alfred a. tomatis, a french ear, nose and throat specialist who initiated the tomatis method and the field of listening training using sound stimulation. dr. billie m. thompson developed an assessment and program decision model to use with enlisten® software and licensed music to select, adapt, and create individualized listening programs for a wide range of applications, abilities, and ages.
