Ms. Baker is a teacher of more than 30 years’ experience whose most recent position was in a Language Development Centre for children from 4 to 8 years of age. Her role involved developing and providing a movement based program using the bottom up approach to improve learning and behaviour. Gillian’s passion for working with children experiencing challenges stem from her own struggles with learning due to auditory issues.
*Ms. Baker and Ms. Loth created Sound for Life in 2008. Initially their focus was the clinic based iLs program for children. They later ran an iLs program trial within a school, and as a result had five Focus 200s operating within the school. The success they were experiencing with children prompted them to run a trial Seniors program in 2013.
The presentation of their Seniors project will cover the pre and post assessment and the treatment process they used with their clinic based and home based clients. They look forward to a discussion afterwards regarding their method and outcomes with other practitioners who have worked with adults and seniors and to explore the potential of iLs with adults.
