About iLs

How Integrated Listening Systems (iLs) Works

iLs activates key areas of the brain simultaneously, trains sensory systems to work together, improves processing of sensory and cognitive information, trains our ability to focus and concentrate.

With sharper auditory and visual skills, we can read better, listen better, attend better. Improved self-regulation leads to self-confidence; self-confidence leads to social skill improvement. Feeling better about ourselves makes us happier people.
