Scientific director: Mrs Tony Macha Evangelopoulou

The first Tomatis Center in Greece

The Center of Audio-Psycho-Phonology (APP) is the first Tomatis Center in Greece, and has been in operation in its present address since its inception in 1987. It has been licensed by professor Tomatis himself. The Center applies the Tomatis method in accordance with the specifications and standards of professor Tomatis concerning the diagnostic procedure, sound therapy, as well as the technical equipment (audiometer with the Tomatis norms for the Listening Test, Electronic Ears, microphones, headphones, cabin equipment). The Center functions independently, without any branches, franchises, or other forms of collaborations with other centers.
The Center of Audio-Psycho-Phonology deals with the pathology of listening, in other words, with disorders of auditory analysis and decoding in persons with normal hearing. According to the Tomatis method, there is a crucial difference between hearing and listening. Listening is the ability to use one’s hearing voluntarily and attentively for the purpose of learning and communicating. Listening is therefore a high-level cognitive function that implies the ability to decode, in order to understand what the other person says. It is more than the passive reception of sound, which is hearing and depends on a functioning of the auditory system. A person with normal hearing may not be able to actively listen and understand what the other person says.
