The Integrated Listening System (ILS)

The Integrated Listening System (ILS) is a program for improving brain and body function. 

The combined elements of an ILS program — movement, treated music and bone conduction — help build the foundation for brain and body organization. By addressing brain function at a foundational level, we are better able to become more mentally and emotionally resilient, more effective at school or work, and function in our modern world.

The ILS is best at helping to improve:

Learning and developmental differences

Executive function, memory and communication

Sensory and motor challenges (coordination, balance, and motor planning)

Neurological injury or illness (brain injury, stroke, or memory loss)

How does the ILS work?

The ILS creates an experience that activates multiple sensory systems to create and strengthen neural connections and networks, harnessing the power of neuroplasticity.

Just like with physical activity, specific, simultaneous and repeated multisensory stimulation gradually trains the brain and body to process and respond to multisensory input more effectively through improved organization, leading to improved function in the world.

The ILS provides multisensory input through filtered classical music, delivered via air- and bone-conduction headphones and movement activities. The ILS activities are fun and can easily be customized for all ages and skill levels.

The Integrated Listening System includes the following programs:

  • 10-hour Calming Program
  • 60-hour Sensory & Motor Program
  • 40-hour Concentration & Attention Program
  • 40-hour Reading & Auditory Processing Program
  • Two 24-hour Optimal Performance Programs

 Who benefits?

The ILS helps improve brain-body skills for individuals across the lifespan with a variety of challenges, including:

  • Dynamic balance, proprioception
  • Auditory and visual processing
  • Gross and fine motor coordination 
  • Memory, attention, and concentration
  • Emotional regulation
  • Reading and auditory processing

What does an ILS session look like?

ILS sessions involve listening to specially treated music through air- and bone-conduction headphones while participating in movement activities using the ILS Integration Kit. This provides auditory input to the brain and sensory input to the body.

Cognitive activities that are added later challenge the brain to process multiple pieces of simultaneous information, which is reflective of the demands required of the brain in our day-to-day world. The activities start very simple and become more challenging as skills improve. Activity selection is guided by an ILS Provider and often takes place with a partner (which may be a parent, a caregiver, a sibling, or the ILS Provider).

Sessions are designed to be fun and enjoyable, and can be delivered in-clinic, at home, or a combination of both.

The ILS can be seamlessly integrated with other discipline-specific interventions and modalities, such as occupational therapy, speech therapy, ADHD coaching, autism specialties, physical therapy, psychology/counseling, and sports coaching, to enhance outcomes.

What this means for your clients:


Improvement in memory, attention, and concentration, leading to better academic outcomes like reading comprehension


An increased ability to self-monitor and regulate emotions and behavior


Improvements in motor coordination and planning, and sensory processing


Functional skill develops that improves participation in everyday activities
