What is the Focus System?

The Focus System is a clinical intervention used to improve brain function through brain and body integration via multisensory input.

The Focus System can be used in-clinic or at home, and consists of specially-treated music combined with fun movement activities, and, when ready, cognitive challenges to further activate brain networks.

Ideal for both children and adults, the Focus System includes programs for sensory & motor, concentration & attention, reading & auditory processing and more.

And with the flexibility of 60-minute or 30-minute sessions, it’s easy to implement in the office, at school or at home.

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.*

How does it work?

Focus System programs provide simultaneous multisensory input to help develop new, and reinforce existing, pathways governing organization of the body and brain function.

Specially-treated music is delivered via 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.

See the video below for case examples and actual client review.

Who is it for?

The Focus System is an effective therapy for both children and adults.

In younger people and those recovering from injury, this staged approach develops a foundation that may never have been fully developed or was interrupted due to an event. With appropriate stimulation, the brain’s ability to successfully process and retain information leads to better academic outcomes. In addition, there is an increased ability to control impulses, self-regulate behavior and engage appropriately with others.

Teens and adults see improvement in these areas, as well as improvement in reading comprehension, concentration, memory, and performance at work. Most report less stress and anxiety and a happier disposition.

In-clinic or at-home use

With a suggested frequency of 3-5times per week, home-based programs can supplement clinic visits.

The Science Behind the Focus System

The Focus System is based on the fact that we can change our brain – we can essentially re-wire 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.
