I have heard of the Tomatis method. I also sat on a thesis committee for a graduate student in the Psychology Dept on my campus, who proposed, as her thesis topic, that the Tomatis Method was a beneficial treatment regimen to treat fluency disorders. The published literature that she presented in her thesis to support the efficacy of this treatment method (for tx of fluency disorders or any speech-language related matter) was scarse in number and questionnable in terms of scientific merit, at least to me. I believe most of the published studies on this topic are from Europe or France. There was a wonderful and comprehensive discussion on this topic on the Auditory-perceptual listserv recently. Perhaps that listserv can assist on this topic.
