Therapeutic Listening – looking to connect

A colleague from our Dementia Network has sent out the following request:

Looking for anybody who has experience using a Therapeutic Listening program with people with dementia.  I came across some interesting information on these programs and their benefits when addressing various cognitive issues.  Most of the work seems to be with children with learning disabilities, autism and other sensory processing problems.  However, people with dementia is a population they cite as potentially benefiting.

I have been able to contact with a local OT (St. John’s, NL) who has lots of experience using Therapeutic Listening with children.  So, she can help me with the methods.  But I would really like to connect with someone who has tried this approach with people with dementia.
