Autism Therapy

We all want to reach our full potential.

Unyte-iLs programs use specially-treated music, movement and cognitive activities so we can get there.

Many children and adults beginning these programs are close to “fight or flight” response. In that state, we can’t process other information or learn new skills. (Think of how well you function during a temper tantrum, when you’re hungry or really excited.) The music delivery gently signals our bodies’ relaxation response. The result is increased calm and self-regulation. Once our emotions are regulated, we can communicate, interact, learn and perform new tasks.

This addresses the development of whole brain/body integration through a staged developmental approach, starting with the fundamentals of sensory integration and then extending through more complex cognitive functions, including language, self-expression, and social skills.

Using Unyte-iLs Programs to Address Autism Spectrum Symptoms

What is Unyte-iLs?

Unyte-iLs Programs: Parent Testimonials

HOW IT WORKS

Unyte-iLs programs are based on the fact that we can change our brain – essentially re-wiring it through specific and repeated stimulation, a concept known as neuroplasticity. As in building strength and endurance with physical exercise, we are able to build neurological pathways and synaptic activity at any age.

  • Integrated Listening Systems has been an integral part of our practice. It has enriched and enhanced the entire therapy process – a powerhouse when combined with sensory integration. Using the auditory and vestibular channel through sound therapy has been the missing link to integrating and organizing the body. The results have been phenomenal!

  • This specific system has helped my teen feel more confident in addressing and improving his own challenges.  If the iLs system had no other benefit, that one reason would be worth using the system entirely!

    Heather Mac, parent
  • So grateful that iLS is always here. In my house. Ready when my son needs it. And iLs ALWAYS makes a difference and fills me with so much hope and excitement for my son's future. What iLS has given to my son is almost unexplainable--but what it gives a PARENT is hope. Hope that you never thought you'd feel or know as a parent. THANK YOU!!!

Unyte-ILS Programs & BEHAVIOR BASED INTERVENTIONS

Many ABA trained therapists implement iLs alongside ABA. The benefits of this combination are evidenced by both immediate (better quality ABA sessions) and long-term results (social/behavior change is accelerated by improved regulation and processing).

Unyte-ILS Programs & RELATIONSHIP BASED THERAPIES

DIR/Floortime, Relationship Development Intervention (RDI) and SCERTS are excellent complements to iLs’ approach. iLs headphone equipment can be worn simultaneous to these approaches with children over 2 years of age.
