AIT: Who Can Benefit?
AIT for ADD/ADHD

    AIT is one of the few programs that is helpful for the treatment of ADD/ADHD (Attention Deficit Disorder and Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder). AIT has been shown to normalize hearing and the way the brain processes information. Often we find that a key element with ADD/ADHD is distractibility due to hypersensitive hearing or other sensory issues. AIT can help normalize the senses so that improvements are seen in focus, attention and ability to concentrate more easily even in noisy environments. In addition, there are fewer times of feeling "over-loaded," better ability to have appropriate behaviors and improved academics. AIT is a good pre-curser to other therapies and educational components as once the functions are more normalized it allows the individual to utilize other therapies or education and training programs more effectively. Once improvements in behavior and learning begin to occur, we often see improvements in mood and social skills as well.

    AIT uses filtered and modulated music to help stimulate the audiological and neurological systems. Since AIT uses sound, which is vibrational, going into the areas of the brain where all the different glands and organs are that control different senses and systems of the body, we often see improvements not only in the hearing but in other areas such as vision, taste, smell, touch, balance, coordination, and hand writing among others.

Programs are individualized for each person based on a pre-screening evaluation.

AIT for Asperger's

    AIT is one of the few programs that is helpful for the treatment of autism spectrum disorders such as Asperger's Syndrome. AIT has been shown to help normalize the way the brain processes information so that we often see a reduction in the sensory sensitivities so common in Asperger's. Once there is less sensory overload, we often see improvements in mood, behaviors and the ability to handle difficult social situations.

    Dr. Berard utilized some of the ideas of Dr. Tomatis to develop his approach, however, where Tomatis focused on the psychological and emotional issues, Dr. Berard felt it was important to get at the hearing and brain functions. Once improvements in behavior and learning begin to occur, we often see improvements in mood and social skills as well.

AIT for Autism & PDD

    AIT is one of the few programs that is helpful for the treatment of (ASD) autism spectrum disorders including (PDD) Pervasive Developmental Disorder and Asperger's Syndrome. AIT has been shown to normalize the way the brain processes information so that we often see the sensory issues and hypersensitivity diminish or resolve completely as well as speech and language improvements. If one can hear more accurately, one can develop speech more accurately and easily. If one can have more normalized senses then there are fewer over-loads and a reduction in "self-stimming" behaviors. AIT is a good pre-curser to other therapies as once the functions are more normalized it allows the individual to utilize other therapies more effectively.

AIT for Auditory Processing Disorders

    AIT is one of the few programs that is helpful for the treatment of disorders such as Auditory Processing Disorder. AIT has been shown to help normalize the hearing, the auditory processing and the way the brain processes information so that we often see a reduction in the auditory delays and distortions that are most commonly found in Auditory Processing Disorders. Once there is more normalization of the auditory system, we often see improvements in speech and language development, receptive and expressive language and other related issues such as the ability to handle noisy environments and social situations.

    One study of AIT showed increased cell growth in the corpus callosum which helps with right/left crossover functions such as handwriting and other fine and gross motor skills. We have also seen great improvements in comprehension which of course can affect academic and learning abilities as well as focus and concentration.

AIT for Central Auditory Processing Disorders

    AIT is one of the few programs that is helpful for the treatment of disorders such as CAPD or Central Auditory Processing Disorder. AIT has been shown to help normalize the hearing, the auditory processing and the way the brain processes information so that we often see a reduction in the auditory delays and distortions that are most commonly found in Auditory Processing Disorders. Once there is more normalization of the auditory system, we often see improvements in speech and language development, receptive and expressive language and other related issues such as the ability to handle noisy environments and social situations.

AIT for Dyslexia

    AIT is one of the few programs that are helpful for the treatment of disorders such as Dyslexia and other Learning Disabilities (LD). AIT has been shown to help normalize the hearing, the auditory processing and the way the brain processes information so that we often see a reduction in the auditory delays and distortions that are most commonly found in Dyslexia and other learning issues. Once there is more normalization of the auditory system, we often see improvements in reading, writing, speech and language development, (receptive and expressive) and other related issues such as the ability to handle noisy environments and social situations.

    Studies at Rutgers University and elsewhere have found that often with dyslexia there are slight delays in the hearing or ability for the brain to process auditory information. Since the Berard Method of AIT helps to normalize the hearing and neurological functions, we often see improvements in academics and learning issues related to dyslexia.

AIT for Depression

    AIT is one of the few programs that is helpful for the treatment of depression. AIT has been shown to help normalize the way the brain processes information. Once there is less sensory overload, we often see improvements in mood, behaviors and the ability to handle difficult social situations. Dr. Berard found that certain depressions correspond to certain patterns of hearing and when these are normalized, the depression diminishes or clears up. One study found that there was a normalization of serotonin levels after AIT which can also positively affect mood.

    AIT uses filtered and modulated music to help stimulate the audiological and neurological systems. Since AIT uses sound, which is vibrational, going into the areas of the brain where all the different glands and organs are that control different senses and systems of the body.

AIT for Hyperlexia

    AIT is one of the few programs that is helpful with disorders often associated with hyperlexia such as Autism Spectrum Disorders. AIT has been shown to normalize the way the brain processes information so that we often see the sensory issues and hypersensitivity diminish or resolve completely as well as speech and language improvements. If one can hear more accurately, one can develop speech more accurately and easily. If one can have more normalized senses then there are fewer over-loads and a reduction in "self-stimming" behaviors.

AIT for Hyper-Sensitive Hearing

    AIT is one of the few programs that is helpful for the treatment of Hyper-sensitive Hearing. AIT has been shown to normalize the hearing and the way the brain processes information so that we often see the sensory issues and hyper-sensitivity diminish or resolve completely as well as improvements in learning, speech/language development, mood and behaviors. If one can hear more accurately, one can develop speech more accurately and easily. If one can have more normalized senses then there are fewer over-loads and a reduction in related negative behaviors. Children and adults with hypersensitive hearing often get easily overwhelmed in noisy environments or from having to handle hearing quiet background noises louder than normal. Once the hearing is more normalized people are able to handle noisy or chaotic situations much easier. AIT is a good pre-curser to other therapies as once the functions are more normalized it allows the individual to utilize other therapies more effectively.

AIT for Hypo-Sensitive Hearing

    AIT is one of the few programs that is helpful for the treatment of Hypo-sensitive Hearing, hearing loss and other hearing impairments. AIT has been shown to normalize the hearing and the way the brain processes information so that we often find improved hearing both in terms of volume, clarity of sound and acuity as well as sound field discrimination or what some people call "cocktail party syndrome" (in other words, difficulty distinguishing foreground from background sounds).

    AIT helps in many other related areas since hearing can affect language skills, mood, behavior and social issues. Once hearing is more normalized many of the issues diminish or clear up. For example if one can hear more accurately, one can speak more accurately and easily. People with hypo-sensitive hearing often get easily overwhelmed in noisy environments. Once the hearing is more normalized people are able to handle noisy or chaotic situations much easier.

AIT for Sensory Integration Disorders

    AIT is one of the few programs that is helpful for the treatment of Sensory Integration Disorders. AIT has been shown to normalize the way the brain processes information so that we often see the sensory issues and hyper-sensitivity diminish or resolve completely as well as improvements in mood, behavior, learning issues, speech and language. If one can have more normalized senses then there is less over-load, less need for self-soothing and a reduction in "self-stimming" behaviors. AIT is a good pre-curser to other therapies as once the functions are more normalized it allows the individual to utilize other therapies more effectively.

    AIT helps with other sensory issues also. It uses filtered and modulated music to help stimulate the audiological and neurological systems. Since AIT uses sound, which is vibrational, going into the areas of the brain where all the different glands and organs are that control different senses and systems of the body, we often see improvements not only in the hearing but in other areas such as vision, taste, smell, touch, balance, coordination, and hand writing among others.

AIT for Non-verbal Learning Disorders (NLD)

    AIT is one of the few programs that is helpful for the treatment of disorders such as Non-verbal Learning Disorders (NLD). AIT has been shown to help normalize the hearing, the auditory processing and the way the brain processes information so that we often see a reduction in the auditory delays and distortions that are most commonly found in non-verbal and other learning issues. Once there is more normalization of the auditory system and neurological functions, we often see improvements in reading, writing, speech and language development, (receptive and expressive) and other related issues such as the ability to handle noisy environments and social situations.
