Counselors, psychologists, neurofeedback therapists and other clinicians find iLs a natural complement to their practice. iLs programs are conducted simultaneously with the therapist’s specialty. The inherent flexibility of an iLs program allows therapists to customize programs to meet client needs and time constraints. READ ILS RESEARCH
Most mental health professionals use iLs in the beginning of a therapy session as a warm up, building rapport with the client and reducing anxiety in the process.
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 trains the neurological pathways needed for daily functioning. The combined activities have a global effect on the brain and central nervous system, influencing the following systems and their function: auditory, visual, vestibular (balance and coordination), motor, cognitive (thinking and reasoning) and emotional. As a result, it is successfully applied to a wide variety of conditions.
