The VoicePro has been so beneficial to my practice as a pediatric speech language pathologist. With ability to amplify both the client’s and my own voice, I have seen improved sustained attention and accuracy of speech production. The microphone allows for visual and auditory modeling at the same time. This has been a key tool in making progress with each of my clients, and as a bonus the children think it is cool and are motivated to use it each session!
The kids I have used it with have all made really great progress. Seriously, it is making me look like a rock star OT. Here are some of the changes I have noticed in kiddos: Better mood, more independent with self-care and home work, more social, improved expressive and receptive language skills, improved coordination, less stressed, decreased tactile and auditory sensitivity.
Our centers consistently see excellent results with iLs with regard to attention and learning problems. iLs works at a neurological level so it’s a great complement to the behavioral, cognitive and medical approaches we use at Hallowell Centers... Even the best therapy only works if you actually stick with it, so the fact that iLs is not only effective but is fun and can be done at home makes it extremely appealing.
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.
My twins are now 6, and at 3 years of age we were given the diagnosis of severe (son) and moderate (daughter) autism. I have done all of the biomedical interventions that were safe and available, as well as iLs, for the past 2 years. My iLs program has been 4 days a week at home and once a week in clinic (occupational therapy). Right now my daughter no longer has an IEP, speech, OT or ABA and is doing quite well in school. No one at her school even knows that she had a diagnosis of moderate autism 3 years ago. I credit a big part of her progress to the iLs system. My son is also doing quite well, he does still have his IEP but is now in a regular education classroom with an aid. Thank you all again for all of your hard work and research with this program, it has made a world of difference for my children.
I just wanted to say besides how much we love the iLs and your products, your customer service rocks! Thank you for everything.
I wanted to give you an update on our progress using iLs at home, my daughter (adopted, age 7, sensory and attention issues) does rhythmic gymnastics—it’s a very high energy sport and many low energy exercises won’t hold her interest. But her focus is ALWAYS off, which makes it difficult to teach her. However, yesterday after 5 ILS sessions, her coach was simply amazed. She called me to ask what was different. She said she was completely focused, and when she got distracted was able to refocus immediately. Learned so much and was able to do so much more. Also, today she had a friend over, and was able to sit and play for two hours! Unheard of in the past. Something’s different, for sure.
Steven is on #29 of the sensory program and wow, we are so excited with the progress!! The best way I can describe it is as if a fog has lifted from his head. I feel like we are getting to know the “real” Steven now and other people have even noticed he seems happier and just more in the moment. I had no idea of what to expect with this program but so far I am really impressed. So we are definitely continuing and I’ll keep you updated as we go along.
