Unyte-iLs’ mission is to guide every person to train their nervous systems to be more aware, regulated and resilient so they can feel safe, happy and healthy and more effectively respond to life’s challenges.
Our mission is to create and acquire a suite of effective mind-body solutions that will guide tens of millions of people to happier, healthier and more meaningful lives. Our programs help achieve this by improving brain function, body organization and emotional resilience.
Today, our suite of products and programs consists of Safe & Sound Protocol (SSP), The Focus System, Interactive Meditation, Dreampad and Voicepro, supporting both health professionals and their clients, as well as families and individual users.
Our community has grown to more than 10,000 professionals in over 50 countries, serving hundreds of thousands of children, youth and adults globally. These professionals play an invaluable role in helping Unyte-iLs continually refine our programs by providing feedback from the field and participating in new research and product trials.
iLs has deep roots in two distinct modalities of therapy: sound and movement. Many of the techniques iLs uses for treating music were developed decades ago in Europe, where sound therapy was used effectively to help those with attention and reading difficulties. By focusing on specific frequency bandwidths, therapists discovered they could improve function in three critical areas required for learning: sensorimotor function, language and attention/motivation.
The sensory and movement component of iLs was developed from research showing the positive effect of balance, coordination and visual exercises used on children’s ability to learn. As iLs has progressed over the years, we have found that the effect of specific movement activities extends to the cognitive function and emotional health of adults as well as children.
The iLs language component, the VoicePro™, employs unique audio technology and is the first language program to integrate expressive language exercises with movement. Our ability to process information, plan thoughts, and express them is intertwined with the areas of the brain involved in movement and balance. By exercising these interconnected areas at the same time, we are able to increase ‘transference’, i.e. transfer the improvements beyond the clinical setting to the real world.
The iLs program was designed by co-founders Kate O’Brien Minson, Randall Redfield and Clinical Director Ron Minson, MD, in a staged manner so that the combined modalities of music, movement and language begin at a relatively easy level and gradually become more difficult. The program is customized for all levels so that most people find it fun and engaging, setting in motion an upward spiral of confidence and success as they progress through the program.
