THANKS FOR JOINING US AT THE
STAR Virtual Summit: Sensory Processing in Autism
We all want to reach our full potential.
Unyte-iLs programs use specially-treated music, movement and cognitive activities so we can get there.
Our programs are based on the fact that we can change our brain – essentially re-wiring 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.
Developed using a bottom-up approach, the Focus System and SSP are non-invasive solutions that are practical and accessible. Each program includes music, movement, breathing, and language exercises to nourish the nervous system and enable meaningful and lasting changes in physiological state and quality of life.

THE FOCUS SYSTEM
By improving brain function we can achieve our goals and realize our full potential. Unyte-iLs programs provide support to professionals and their clients everyday.
We partner with healthcare professionals, families and individuals to deliver these multisensory products in-clinic or remotely.
Respond effectively to life’s challenges
“Respond vs. react”, replacing emotionally-charged reactivity with controlled responsiveness and resilience
Access higher learning and cognition
Learn and retain important facts and concepts that enable greater confidence and societal contribution
Build positive social relationships
Develop relationships and truly connect with others
How it works
Focus System programs provide simultaneous multisensory input to help develop new and reinforce existing pathways governing the organization of the body and brain function.
Therapeutic 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.
Who is it for?
Especially in younger people and those recovering from injury, the Focus System 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 also 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.
The Focus System
The Focus System improves brain function through the implementation of the our methodology: brain and body integration through multisensory input.
The Focus System is a clinical-level intervention designed for home use, consisting of therapeutically-treated music combined with fun movement activities, and, when ready, cognitive challenges to further activate brain networks.
Dr. Ron Minson, M.D. on How the Focus System Works
Dr. Minson and Dr. Hallowell, who are experts in their fields of ADHD and sound therapy, respectively, discuss how the Focus System works. They explain how multi-sensory input is used to improve functional outcomes.

Our consultants can help you find the right programs for you and your clients.
At STAR Center our therapists use the Focus System 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 this program in combination with OT. The Focus System 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 the Focus System to OT. We use it with most of our children in clinic and we often send clients home with a Focus System for continuation of therapy once their intensive short-term program is complete.author of Sensational Kids, Founder of SPD Foundation
