HOW iLs IMPROVES
BRAIN & BODY FUNCTION
Music, multisensory input & Movement
Brain & Body Organization
My Best Self
iLs provides programs that improve cognitive, language and social abilities. As our brain/body connection becomes more organized, we better process the world around us and become more confident, happy and engaged.
The VoicePro is a great addition to occupational therapy! I am able to work on a range of skills from voice modulation to structured auditory processing tasks. The best part is the headset with microphone – the child’s hands are free for playing and the cord is long enough for the child to swing!
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.
I wanted you to know that not only did I enjoy the course, this might have been the only training/continuing ed course I’ve taken where I haven’t wanted to fall asleep after lunch. 🙂 After the first training I took last August in Oklahoma City, I was encouraged and excited, yet still hesitant to buy my own unit. After the success stories from my fellow SLPs and the OTs from Tulsa Sunshine and an amazing refresher course, I bought the Total Focus System. I am currently starting the 3rd session of SM on both of my kiddos and myself. Looking forward to watching the progression!

The Brain's Way of Healing
Dr. Doidge’s best selling book on neuroplasticity, The Brain that Changes Itself, describes how the brain is able to change in response to specific and repeated stimulation. In his new book, The Brain’s Way of Healing, he describes neuroplastic interventions, including iLs, which are supported by clinical evidence and are changing people’s lives.
The Polyvagal Theory
Stephen W. Porges, a leading expert in developmental psychophysiology and developmental behavioral neuroscience, is the mind behind the groundbreaking Polyvagal Theory, which has startling implications for the treatment of anxiety, depression, trauma, and autism. Adopted by clinicians worldwide, the Polyvagal Theory has provided exciting new insights into the way our autonomic nervous system unconsciously mediates social engagement, trust and intimacy.
