This one-hour course covers the use of the Student Focus for those who are already using the Total Focus System. Program structure, system implementation and best practices for using iLs in the school day will all be covered.
iLs is a fun activity, or exercise, usually done in the classroom. A waistpack is worn by each student, carrying an iPod loaded with iLs treated music and an amplifier…
- iLs’ special air and bone conduction headphones are connected to the iPod through the Amplifier to power the bone conduction.
- Movement games which require visual, auditory and balance systems to work together are performed while listening to the music.
- Quiet activities, such as drawing, puzzles, Legos, etc. can also be done while listening for portions of the session.
- Each unit can be customized for individual needs (e.g. learning difficulties, autism).
- Program sessions are flexible and may be customized per school schedules; typical programs are 15-30 minutes in length, 2-3 times per week.
- Sessions may be completed in small groups, one-on-one, pullout, PE, art or in the classroom.
- Sessions may be overseen by Teachers, Therapists, Parent volunteers, Para-professionals, and others trained in iLs.
The iLs School Program is all inclusive, including training, equipment, online iLs Measure of Foundational Abilities, immediate replacement of equipment, if needed and ongoing support. Professional training opportunities are available via videos, on-demand webinars and specialized trainings. Professional case consultation is also available by appointment with iLs’ Clinical Director and Advanced Certification Trainer, Ron Minson, MD.
