iLs has been an excellent addition to our practice. We feel it is one of the most powerful tools for treating sensory and auditory processing disorders. The changes we see in the children we work with continue to amaze us!
As a pediatric occupational therapist who has been practicing for over 25 years, I am continually amazed at the effectiveness of the iLs equipment with children on the autistic spectrum, who have sensory integration disorders, language based and non-verbal learning disabilities as well as other developmental delays. This equipment facilitates growth and development in the areas of motor skills, language/communication and social skills at a greater rate than any modality I have used. It is also a pleasure being associated with the Center for Inner Change, iLs’ “sister company”, and the Minsons, who offer a wealth of knowledge and experience with care and integrity. I would recommend the iLs training and equipment to any practitioner who is interested in developing their practice with this exciting, state-of-the-art technology.
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!
iLs never advertises itself as a magic cure for ADHD and SPD, and it’s not. Instead, the program is designed to be used continuously over several weeks, gradually helping clients improve focus, attention span, and self-control. I like that it’s part of an overall lifestyle change – one that we’ve really benefited from making.
We are doing great and enjoying the program. My son has experienced some pretty big growth since starting, a big one has been with his fear around water. At the beginning of the season he was terrified of being in water, even with a life jacket, and would cling to me. Very quickly his confidence increased and he was comfortable swimming around with his life jacket. As of last week he was so confident he wanted to swim without his life jacket and was able to. We are 34 sessions in.
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
Integrated Listening Systems (iLs) released results from a Dreampad user study with 10 children who were having trouble sleeping. Some of the study participants showed dramatic improvements, with eight of the ten feeling that the Dreampad made a huge improvement in their lives.
“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.”
