We figured that she would have to be in therapy for a while and that she maybe wouldn’t even be in mainstream school. But she’s doing great! Nobody even knows that she’s autistic, except her teacher. – Pediatrician Lisa McDonough, MD, Maggie’s Mother
Maggie was diagnosed with autism. Socially and emotionally, Maggie was easily overwhelmed and frustrated by daily activities. She also lacked independence and had low self-esteem. Maggie had difficulty getting dressed and preferred to avoid planning due to difficulty with tasks.
The iLs Focus System was used both at home and in-clinic for three sessions per week over a period of five months.
These days, Maggie is functioning socially in a regular classroom without support and shows no symptoms of an autism spectrum disorder. Maggie has progressed from being a child with severely impaired communication and social skills to functioning at a typical peer level.

Focus System programs provide simultaneous multisensory input to help develop new and reinforce existing pathways governing organization of the body and brain function. Therapeutic music is delivered via iLs’ air and bone conduction headphones, providing auditory input to the brain and sensory input to the body. Movement activities, customizable for all levels, provide additional sensory and motor input for body organization. Finally, cognitive activities, added later, challenge the brain to process multiple pieces of simultaneous information, which is reflective of demands required of the brain in our day-to-day world.
