Using Light & Sound for Accelerated Learning
Light and sound stimulation is a powerful aid to learning. The proof is based primarily on the work of one visionary researcher and clinician, Dr. Rayma Ditson-Sommer of Arizona State University.
Although many devices claim to deliver learning benefits, Dr. Ditson-Sornmer h s long sought to distinguish the approaches that yield powerful results from those that do not.
Here we list the very tapes and light/sound equipment Dr. Ditson-Sommer herself uses.
