Integrated Listening Systems (iLs) is a multi-sensory program for improving brain function. The activities are fun and can be customized for all ages and skill levels, for use in clinics, schools, and home.
iLs is a complementary approach to brain fitness which can be integrated into a broad variety of educational, therapeutic and self-improvement programs. In the same way we can train our bodies to become stronger and healthier, iLs trains the brain to process sensory, cognitive and emotional information more effectively. With better synaptic connectivity, we perform better. It’s about as simple as that.
We start with music and movement, and then gradually integrate language and cognitive processes. The exercises appear simple but become increasingly difficult as we add new layers for simultaneous processing. The program involves no computers or screens of any type. Someone once referred to iLs as “a boot camp for the brain.” We’d like to think of it more as play, and we all know we work hardest when we play!
Who Benefits from iLs?
iLs has a global effect on the brain and central nervous system. As a result, it is successfully integrated into a wide variety of programs, including performance optimization and therapeutic goals related to learning difficulties, neurodevelopmental conditions such as Autism, psychological/emotional therapy and stroke/head injury rehab.
