“The staff has been so caring, so knowledgeable and so helpful in helping my son, Connor, deal with his auditory processing challenges…we’ve seen a 360-degree change in so many areas…Connor’s confidence and self-esteem improved dramatically and our home environment has become so much more peaceful. Even Connor has recommended
it to others.”

Programs for Success

Pathfinders uses a variety of revolutionary, brain-based tools and programs to help clients develop these critical thinking, learning, and communication skills.

PACE (Processing and Cognitive Enhancement)

Designed to quickly and significantly build those underlying mental skills that are vital to academic success. PACE procedures are done one-on-one with a trainer and consist of many small steps and immediate feedback. As a child progresses through a procedure, tasks are added to it demanding greater attention and requiring new skills to become automatic. PACE achieves maximum results in the shortest period of time. To get these significant improvements requires at least six hours of intense training per week: three hours at home and three hours with a trainer.


A unique learning system that offers effective solutions for overcoming dyslexia, attention deficit, learning disabilities and reading challenges. It changes how an individual uses his or her brain to learn. It is not a “one size fits all,” but rather a prescriptive approach.

Samonas Sound Therapy

An incredibly gentle but powerful dynamic tool for supporting the entire auditory system, and it’s easy for families to use. Samonas re-educates the ear and auditory pathways for increased learning, attention, communication, listening, and sensory integration. This is accomplished through a prescribed program of specially modified classical music and nature sounds CDs that stimulate the hearing mechanism to take in a full spectrum of sound.

Auditory Stimulation Training (AST)

A combination of Samonas’ Sound Therapy and directed audio-vocal training lessons. Audio-vocal training is used to help the person’s voice acquire the wide range of frequencies that his or her brain is learning to hear or pay attention to. When the voice is richer and contains a wider range of frequencies, it becomes the ongoing stimulus for the auditory system with many positive outcomes: speaking now provides energy to the brain for thinking, social and communication skills improve, and singing improves. The person is more interesting to listen to, better able to monitor his or her speaking and reading accuracy, as well as the content of what is said.

Discover Math®

Is not just about “doing” math, but it is about understanding math processes. Students learn the basics of how numbers work using manipulatives, visualizing, and dialoguing to create a firm understanding of concepts and processes. Students not only understand how math works through basic algebra and geometry concepts, but they also develop reasoning, visualizing, problem solving, and expressive language skills.

PATH to Reading

Was developed by Dr. Teri Lawton, a neurobiologist who has studied visual perception for over 30 years. Her research shows that the core deficiency of many poor readers is an impaired visual ability to discriminate the direction of motion, which results in spatial and temporal sequencing problems caused by neural timing deficits. It is a computer-based CD-ROM game that improves learning ability and enhances the desire to read. Training usually requires half hour sessions two times a week for twelve weeks.

The Listening Program (TLP)

With global user trust, The Listening Program has been proven to have effects on the brain worldwide. TLP has been regularly used to support a large number of brain performance areas including: executive function, communication, auditory processing, social and emotional function, stress response, motor coordination and creativity. TLP values the idea that brain performance can be maintained or advanced by participating in healthy sound practices. The programs within TLP are personalized to meet each person’s individual goals by achieving peak performance.
