Introducing the Safe & Sound Protocol
Read more about the collaborative project between Dr. Porges and iLs.
Just wanted to pass on that we just began our two-hundredth client. He started on our two-and-a-half year anniversary. Who knew we’d come so far so fast? We feel truly blessed to be doing what we do and are thankful every day for the opportunity to change lives. We cannot thank all of you enough for your on-going work and support.
I can unequivocally say that iLs stands far above the rest in terms of measurable, functional gains with a wide variety of clients. Not only have we seen consistent improvements in listening and specific auditory processing skills, we have also witnessed changes in motor components such as balance and coordination, improved overall organization and regulatory skills as well as gains in academics such as decoding and reading comprehension.
Integrated Listening Systems has been an integral part of our practice. It has enriched and enhanced the entire therapy process – a powerhouse when combined with sensory integration. Using the auditory and vestibular channel through sound therapy has been the missing link to integrating and organizing the body. The results have been phenomenal!
"M" has been in speech therapy and occupational therapy since he was 20 months old, but at two years old, he had a vocabulary of approximately 15 simple words. When he was 2.5 years old, we introduced the iLs Total Focus program to his therapy repertoire and immediately saw results. Within 20 hours of listening to the program, “M” said his first new word in 9 months. At 36 months, M had a breakthrough and began communicating with us. In conjunction with speech, occupational and ABA therapy, iLs has been an instrumental alternative therapy in my son’s healing and success.
Both my daughters were fortunate enough to use iLs this year. They have excelled in school and sports since they have completed their iLs playlist. Together, with occupational therapy and iLs, their sensory issues have almost disappeared. The anxiety and emotions that used to take over lives has subsided. I call them 2.0 versions of themselves. So grateful to have this therapy for my girls. The staff was so helpful and accommodating as well. Thanks for the guidance and support!
This study states that there is “preliminary evidence that iLs is effective in ameliorating conditions for some of the children with sensory over-responsivity and auditory processing impairments.” – Sarah Schoen, PhD, Lucy J. Miller, PhD and Jillian Sullivan, PhD
Conducted at Columbia University Medical Center, this randomized, controlled study compared three non-pharmacological sleep interventions. The most statistically significant results of the study were the reduction in night time awakenings experienced by Dreampad users.
“The Dreampad was surprisingly calming; vibrational music snuck directly into your head is a comfort that I’ve been waiting for just as long as bath towel warmers. The Dreampad is like a bath towel warmer for your tired, anxiety ridden brain.”
“A study showed improvements in sleep initiation, duration of sleep, reduction in night waking, and improved daytime behavior.”
