Building upon psychoacoustic techniques originally developed in Europe, Integrated Listening Systems (iLs) combine auditory stimulation with balance, movement and visual motor activities. Each listening schedule has balance and visual activities included that are explained in a playbook. We use the iLs program as a precursor to IM when sensory integration issues limit progress or prevent completion of the IM program or when auditory processing needs to be address more fully. This program can be completed mostly in the home environment with committed parents.
Bal-A-Vis-X is a series of Balance/Auditory/Vision eXercises, of varied complexity, all of which are deeply rooted in rhythm. We use these exercises integrated through out the IM sessions as needed.
A stand alone program, the Fast ForWord program is a reading intervention designed for students in K-12 who are reading below grade level. The Fast ForWord program develops and strengthens memory, attention, processing rate, and sequencing-the cognitive skills essential for reading intervention program success. Fast Forword may be offered as a supporting program to help the child close the gap specifically in reading after completion of IM. Parents must be committed to support the 45 to 90 minutes per day needed for this program.
Rhythmic Entrainment Intervention (REI) uses specific rhythms and techniques to facilitate improvements in many of the symptoms associated with a variety of neuro-developmental disabilities such as autism, ADD/ADHD, learning disabilities and more. The most prominent areas of improvement are seen in: Attention, Energy levels, Impulsivity, Anxiety, Mood, Sleep. Parents need to commit to 20 to 40 minutes per day of ambient listening.
