iLs for Educators

iLs focuses on improving the functional aspects of learning, such as attention,
memory, processing and emotional balance. More

Once these skills are in place, changes occur at a personal and a group level: the individual student becomes a successful learner, and the classroom becomes a better environment for learning to take place.

How iLs Helps Student, Teacher and School Achieve Goals

A teacher’s primary goal is to educate the struggling student. iLs makes this possible by improving their ability to learn and to succeed in a classroom environment, i.e. improving their ability to process information, attend to tasks and behave appropriately.

Measure Results

The iLs Measure of Foundational Abilities (FMA) aligns with IEP goals to measure success at the individual, school and district level. The evaluations are uniquely adapted for effectiveness in both private and public schools, track progress over time, and graph results in specific performance areas.

Reduce Classroom and Teacher Stress

iLs is a neurological exercise which has both an immediate (de-stress) and long-term effect on the nervous system; it relaxes students while reducing classroom stress and teacher fatigue.

Reduce School and District Costs

At a time when costs are a serious concern, iLs helps reduce special ed costs in specific ways: reducing the number of aids and specialists needed, increasing retention of special ed staff, minimizing the therapy load for schools.

How is iLs implemented?


iLs is a fun activity, or exercise, usually done in the classroom. A waistpack is worn by each student, carrying an iPod loaded with iLs treated music and an amplifier… More

  • iLs’ special air and bone conduction headphones are connected to the iPod through the Amplifier to power the bone conduction.
  • Movement games which require visual, auditory and balance systems to work together are performed while listening to the music.
  • Quiet activities, such as drawing, puzzles, Legos, etc. can also be done while listening for portions of the session.
  • Each unit can be customized for individual needs (e.g. learning difficulties, autism).
  • Program sessions are flexible and may be customized per school schedules; typical programs are 15-30 minutes in length, 2-3 times per week.
  • The programs on the Student Focus have 80, 30-minute sessions.
  • Sessions may be completed in small groups, one-on-one, pullout, PE, art or in the classroom.
  • Sessions may be overseen by Teachers, Therapists, Parent volunteers, Para-professionals, and others trained in iLs.iLs footage in school. Auditory processing, attention, learning difficulties. Denver, CO.

Training

Certification in iLs for schools requires a half-day training which combines webinar instruction with hands-on practice with the equipment.  The instruction includes the iLs methodology, equipment, Portal, iLs Measure of Foundational Abilities, training and support process.  On-site training options are available as well. For more information on planning a training please contact iLs.

Research

iLs is an evidence-based practice, with proven sustained results.

How iLs Works


iLs is based on the fact that we can change our brain – we can essentially re-wire it through specific and repeated stimulation, a concept known as neuroplasticity. As in building strength and endurance with physical exercise, we can build neurological pathways and synaptic activity at any age. iLs trains for brain/body integration through a staged approach, starting with the fundamentals of sensory integration and then extending through more complex cognitive functions, including language, self-expression and social skills.

iLs Programs & Structure

iLs school programs are flexible and can be organized according to a school’s schedule. Sessions vary from 15-60 minutes in length, and may be monitored by para-professionals, parents or any adult with the proper coaching. A school program is typically completed during the course of one semester, however some students benefit from longer programs. Students enjoy the sessions and are excited to participate in the program.
