ARTICLES BY DORINNE DAVIS, MA, CCC-A, FAAA, RCTC, BARA

BIOGRAPHY

Dorinne Davis, MA, CCC-A, FAAA, RCTC, BARA, President/Founder of The Davis Center, Mount Arlington, NJ, is the author of 4 books, including Sound Bodies through Sound Therapy® (hailed as the primer for all sound therapies) and Every Day A Miracle: Success Stories with Sound Therapy® (16 heartwarming stories of sound therapy successes).

She has demonstrated the scientific principles behind the Voice-Ear-Brain Connection in The Davis Addendum® to The Tomatis Effect, and established The Tree of Sound Enhancement Therapy® from which her Diagnostic Evaluation for Therapy Protocol (DETP®) provides the correct administration of any sound-based therapy.

She is credentialed in 17 different sound-based therapies and her background as an audiologist, educator and sound therapist provides the foundation to The Davis Center’s unique “Total Person” approach. She is recognized as a leader in the field of sound therapy and The Davis Center is considered the premier sound therapy center ‘of the future’, only the ‘future’ is now at The Davis Center.

BERARD AIT PRACTICE

Dorinne Davis was trained as an Berard AIT Practitioner by Dr. Guy Berard in 1992, was certified as a Berard AIT Instructor by Dr. Berard, was one of the original 50 members of the International Association of Berard Practitioners (IABP). Dorinne Davis is currently an active member of the Auditory Integration Training Professional Professional Organization (AIT-PRO).

Dr. Guy Berard gave Dorinne Davis special credentials to work with children under the age of 3 who can benefit from Auditory Integration Training because of her audiological area of expertise.

RESEARCH

Ms. Davis’ research has also identified that Berard AIT retrains the acoustic reflex muscle in the middle ear, allowing better transmission of ‘clearer’ sound to the cochlea and subsequently to the brain for comprehension. She has worked with thousands of people, young and old, learning challenged and normal, making change with their response to sound using Auditory Integration Training.

Ms. Davis is an international speaker in the field of sound therapy. Recently she was asked to establish a radio show for Autism One Radio. Her program entitled, “Sound Effects with Dorinne Davis: How sound Affects the Person with Autism” was played on Autism One Radio.
