Integrated Listening Systems

Integrated Listening Systems (iLs) is a multisensory programme that helps improve brain functioning in a range of cognitive areas. The programmes can support adults and children, who experience difficulties in one of the following areas:

Attention and Regulation
Auditory Processing
Learning Ability
Reading
Sensory Processing
Speech

 

iLs is based on the idea that we have the abilities to manipulate our brains.  Ever wondered why there was a surge in the number of brain training games and applications?  Research now suggests that we can re-wire our neural make up through specifIc and repeated stimulation, a concept known as neuroplasty.  When we lift weights and exercise our muscles build up strength and our bodies build up their endurance, our brains are similar! We are able to build neurological pathways and synaptic activity at any age.

iLs trains the brain-body integration and can be used in a staged approach, starting with the fundamentals of sensory integration and then extending through more complex cognitive functions, including language, self expression and cognitive skills.

iLs can be used in conjunction with the Dreampad. The Dreampad is a pillow device that delivers music through gentle, calming vibrations.  It is used to reduce stress, improve sleep behaviour (both falling asleep and staying asleep) and decrease sensory hypersensitivity.

iLs therapy consists of different programs. Each program is used for different therapeutic objectives;

 

The Dreampad

Used to reduce stress, improve sleep and decrease sensory hypersensitivity.

 

iLs Focus

Has a range of programmes, that have a number of objectives including the following:

  • Sensory Motor
  • Concentration and Attention
  • Reading and Auditory Processing
  • Optimal Performance for Teens and Adults
  • Interactive Language Activities
  • Calming and Preparatory Mini Programme

 

iLs Kick Start

Designed to supplement clinical programmes, it gradually progresses through programmes to support the following:

  • Sensory Motor Skills
  • Communication Skills
  • Integration Skills

 

iLs Interactive Language Programme

Designed to help children and adults improve various auditory processing skills such as;

  • Phonemic awareness
  • Auditory memory
  • Auditory figure ground
  • Dichotic listening
