iLs Training for Occupational Therapists
iLs is natural fit for OT practices, whether in clinic, school or home environments. In addition to enhancing an OT’s sensory integration work, it is also an effective rehab tool and is easily customized for different therapeutic objectives, program lengths, and client needs.
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). DIR/Floortime, Relationship Development Intervention (RDI) and SCERTS are excellent complements to iLs’ approach.
