Integrated Listening System (iLs)

Improving cognitive skills, communication & processing skills, concentration, memory & organization

How Does iLs Work?

iLs programs effectively “re-train” parts of the brain involved in learning, communicating and moving. Combining an auditory program with specific visual and balance activities, iLs strengthens neurological pathways and improves our ability to learn and to process information.

The three main systems for organizing sensory input – visual, auditory and balance (vestibular) – are highly interrelated.  Exercising all three simultaneously is a holistic approach which can help people of any age feel sharper, more focused, and self confident.

Who Can Benefit?

iLs programs direct our sensory systems, thereby influencing a broad spectrum of our day-to-day functions. iLs is most often used to improve the following concerns:

Learning difficulties-reading, writing, cognitive functions

Visual/Auditory processing

Concentration & memory

Balance /Coordination

Other areas where iLs is successful include the recovery of executive functions after head injuries, and improving emotional well-being, and helping children on the autistic spectrum.

How long is the program?

iLs clinic programs vary from sessions from 15 to 40 sessions in length.  Sessions are typically 30-60 minutes each, with a frequency schedule of 3 per week.  Some clinic programs intermix home sessions to achieve the required frequency.

Preliminary Research

iLs continues to gather data supporting the empirical results we see daily in clinics and schools.  To date, university research and third party data shows efficacy in the areas of:

Reading - data shows students reading ability improving by an average of about 2 years after a 3-month iLs program.

Auditory Processing - improvement occurs across the entire range of auditory processing skills, especially in the areas of auditory figure ground, auditory memory, dichotic listening and binaural summation.

Attention - school data consistently report significant improvement in attention as well as behavior.
