Cerebral palsy is an illness comprising diverse movement disorders and attitudes disorders, resulting from long-lasting brain damage in the early stage of development. The psychophysical condition of the disabled child can be corrected through streamlining because of compensating possibilities of the brain. However, the care of the patient requires frequent hospitalizations and many neurological consultations, speech therapy, physiotherapy and therapeutic consultations. Well-conducted rehabilitation enhances the chances that the child will show comparatively even-tempered development and communication. The goal of the work is to describe a case of a boy with cerebral palsy, rehabilitated in different ways, additionally subjected to audio-psycho-linguistic stimulation training. The Tomatis method is based on listening to certain sounds and music through the device specially created for it, called the “Electronic Ear”. The result of the conducted analysis is that the child showed an essential improvement in selected cognitive functions and the stimulation with applied sounds had a positive effect on activity of the central nervous system after application the Tomatis method.
