Integrated Listening Program
Brain Integration Through Music, Movement and Language
iLS is a sensory-based listening program that targets the skills of attention, visual and auditory processing, memory, social skills, self-confidence, emotional and behavioral regulation, sensory processing, and communication.
iLs programs effectively “re-train” parts of the brain involved in learning, communication and movement. It is based on the fact that we can change our brain – we can essentially re-wire it through specific and repeated stimulation, a concept known as neuroplasticity. As in building strength and endurance with physical exercise, we are able to strengthen neurological pathways and improve our ability to learn and process information.
Details about the iLS Focus Program
A prescription for occupational therapy is required from your primary care physician. An occupational therapist will perform an initial examination and design an individualized treatment plan based on current skill level and family goals. Following initial evaluation, you must purchase the rental equipment directly from iLS and it will be incorporated into your weekly therapy sessions. Additionally, two, one-hour periods of listening at home is required during the week at home. The occupational therapist will review procedures, guidelines and equipment with you at your initial visit.
