Sensory integration dysfunctions range from almost unnoticeable to debilitating. It may result in diagnoses of dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADD/ADHD, autistic spectrum disorders, speech & language difficulties, sound hypersensitivity and clumsiness.
It is clearly seen in cases of developmental delay, and sometimes has associated symptoms such as thumb-sucking, bed-wetting, hyperactivity, or awkward movement and posture. More about sensory integration here...
The Integrated Listening System can be used on its own, or as an adjunct to a course of neurofeedback.
Programme To design your listening programme, we gather information through a questionnaire and, when possible, with a QEEG brain map in London. Based upon the results, a programme is created to suit your needs.
Tutorial After a brief tutorial on basic operation you take the rental iLs home with you, or if you are out of reach of our London centre we ship the equipment to you.
The iLs The iLs equipment consists a standard iPod, a small amplifier, and specially made headphones with a small vibrating plate for sonic bone conduction. The whole kit can be worn and carried quite comfortably.
Session During a session, you listen to filtered music. Fine adjustments are made by filtering out or boosting different frequencies, both through sonic bone conduction and through normal over-ear headphones. This forces the brain to work harder on some sounds and to ignore others.
Duration The programme duration is usually sixty sessions over eight weeks. Sessions are a half hour each and may be divided up over the day if necessary. The gradual and steady iLs programme ensures that the changes are reinforced, with enough time to integrate.
