An iLs Summer Program takes advantage of the extra time available to students over the summer break when there are fewer obligations and distractions. Whether a refresher program for someone who’s done iLs before or a first-time program, doing iLs can boost performance and improve confidence.
Our research shows that iLs alone can improve math scores by a whole year on average and reading scores by up to more than two grades. And when paired with another intervention (like a math or reading program), iLs can accelerate progress even more rapidly.
Make sure to listen this mini-podcast with iLs Clinical Director, Ron Minson, MD, on summer boosters.
If you haven’t tried the Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) yet, summer is a great time to do so. Since it requires an hour a day for five consecutive days, scheduling is easy when you’re not tied to the school calendar. Some clinics even dedicate whole weeks to implementing the SSP. You might also consider doing the SSP together with your child; it’s a great bonding activity that may result in some nice co-regulation.
