Transforming the lives of children, youth and adults everyday

90% of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder or Sensory Processing Disorder saw great improvement in sensory processing and motor coordination by using the Focus System home program, in addition to increased emotional regulation.*

The Focus System: Improve Brain + Body Organization

Combines auditory, balance, and movement activities to create a foundation for learning, attention, processing and behavior.

On-Demand Webinar: Focus Home Program for Families and Professionals

Learn about the Focus Home Program and how it may help improve brain function and emotional regulation. We will take a look at the benefits experienced by thousands of families, and share information on how to get started.

We can change our brain – essentially rewiring it through specific and repeated stimulation, a concept known as neuroplasticity. Similar to building strength and endurance with physical exercise, we are able to build neurological pathways and synaptic activity at any age.

HOW IT WORKS

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.

In-Clinic or At-Home Use

The Focus System is a complementary therapy that can be integrated into a broad variety of practices, such as:
  • Occupational Therapists
  • Speech and Physical Therapists
  • Autism Specialists
  • Psychologists and Counselors
  • Educators

For at-home use, The Focus System can be done in the comfort of your own home with the support of a virtual trained coach.

Ron Minson, M.D. & Edward Hallowell, M.D.: How Unyte-iLs Works

Dr. Hallowell and Dr. Minson, experts in their fields of ADHD and sound therapy, respectively, discuss how iLs works. They explain how the multi-sensory input of iLs is used to improve functional outcomes.

A Pilot Study with STAR and Integrated Listening Systems for Children With Sensory Processing Problems

Participants showed improvement in home and education-related goals. Changes in physiologic arousal were noted in five of seven participants. Standardized scales demonstrated sensitivity to change.

“At STAR Center our therapists use iLs for a few key reasons: it can be customized to each individual’s needs, the bone conduction delivery is a wonderful vestibular supplement, and the quality of the music is remarkable… We have seen tremendous developmental growth spurts using iLs in combination with OT. iLs combined with OT seems to accelerate or “jump start” many of the children’s developmental changes. It also can have a calming effect on some children which makes it easier for our therapists to work with the child. In general, we see accelerated gains by adding iLs to OT… We use it with most of our children in clinic and we often send clients home with an iLs Focus system for continuation of therapy once their intensive short-term program is complete.”

  • The kids I have used it with have all made really great progress. Seriously, it is making me look like a rock star OT. Here are some of the changes I have noticed in kiddos: Better mood, more independent with self-care and home work, more social, improved expressive and receptive language skills, improved coordination, less stressed, decreased tactile and auditory sensitivity.

    Alison Goodrich, MS OTR/L
  • Our centers consistently see excellent results with iLs with regard to attention and learning problems. iLs works at a neurological level so it’s a great complement to the behavioral, cognitive and medical approaches we use at Hallowell Centers... Even the best therapy only works if you actually stick with it, so the fact that iLs is not only effective but is fun and can be done at home makes it extremely appealing.

    Edward Hallowell, MD Harvard Medical School faculty, child and adult psychiatrist, author and ADHD expert
  • iLs has been an excellent addition to our practice. We feel it is one of the most powerful tools for treating sensory and auditory processing disorders. The changes we see in the children we work with continue to amaze us!

  • 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!
