This Presentation will focus on AIT (Audio Integration Training), a sound and music therapy developed by Dr. Guy Berard that helps normalize the hearing and the way the brain processes information.
Many individuals that suffer from Autism Spectrum, and other learning or neurological disorders have abnormalities in the way that they hear. With the hearing normalized, many of the learning and other issues (such as: ability to focus, hearing sensitivities, speech/language and social skills) begin to improve or clear up. AIT provides a “re-training” or “re-organization” process done over the course of 10 days.
