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

The primary goal is to educate the struggling student. iLs does this 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 Student Assessment aligns with IEP goals to measure success at the individual, school and district level. The assessments are uniquely adapted for effectiveness in both private and public schools trackable over time, with graph reports 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 school.

How is iLs implemented?

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

  • iLs’ special headphones are connected to the iPod to enable listening while moving
  • 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. are also 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 15-60 minutes in length, 2-3 times per week
  • Most programs are a total of 30-40 sessions over a 12-week period
  • Sessions may be completed in small groups or one-on-one

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, assessment and support process.  Instruction is delivered on site or via webinar.  For more information on planning a training please contact iLs.

Research

iLs is an evidence-based practice which allows for ongoing tracking of student 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, but some schools prefer longer programs which continue through two semesters.  Students enjoy the sessions and are usually excited to participate in the program.

iLs & Autism

iLs is implemented in schools for children with learning difficulties as well as neurodevelopmental conditions such as autism and Down’s Syndrome. Research and experience with thousands of cases show that iLs can be helpful in achieving goals related to motor, language, and cognitive function as well as emotional regulation.
