  • If a child doesn’t show severe signs of hearing sensitivity, but does show signs of sensory defensiveness as it relates to wearing socks, jeans etc… Is AIT a good solution?

    Absolutely, many other sensory areas improve just because of AIT. The sensory spill-over which marks AIT as an intervention, has great benefit for tactile, gustatory, olfactory, visual, vestibular and proprioceptive sensory disturbances. 

  • Will the training need to be repeated?

    Training may be repeated, approximately one year apart, until no more benefit is seen. Many clients only need AIT once in order to make their learning more effective.

  • What do I need to observe during the training?

    This time should be kept as stress free as possible.  Clients may feel tired or agitated from the stimulation. It is important to make all of the appointments on time. A healthy ear is important to get the optimal training effect.

  • How long does it take to see a difference with learning?

    Results and intensity differ with each individual since all learn differently. Some changes may happen immediately. Most of the learning changes will occur in the first three to six months.  You may continue to notice changes up to twelve or more months later.

  • What happens during an AIT session?

    During the training participants listen through headphones to the music program, which has been processed and filtered. The sessions run for ten consecutive days with two half hour sessions each day. Each session needs to be at least three hours apart.
