Have you ever considered sound therapy as a component to a home program for sensory processing disorder? There are a lot of programs out there, but one stands above the rest, and has demonstrated its effectiveness through research and clinical data.
The Focus System from Integrated Listening Systems is a unique sound therapy program that can be implemented at home to work on a variety of sensory, behavioral, emotional and academic issues. These include:
The Focus System uses engineered classical music (such as Mozart, Beethoven, Strauss and Vivaldi) that has filtered and enhanced certain sound frequencies to create a therapeutic effect. Additionally, the program passes the music to the brain through the air as we normally hear as well as bone conduction. The bone conduction is provided via an amplifier that is installed in the headband of the headphones. It produces vibration to the bones of the skull and causes movement of the fluid of inner ear and vestibular system to improve body awareness, balance, coordination.
More than just a sound therapy program, the Focus System uses engaging balance, core stability and coordination exercises to further challenge the brain.
The Focus System is a versatile system that can be used for years. It has 4 different programs that can target different areas of the brain and body, depending on which sound frequencies it emphasizes:
- Sensory and Motor
- Concentration and Attention
- Reading/Auditory Processing
- Optimal Performance
Used 30-60 minutes per day 3-5x/week, the Focus System can supplement in-clinic therapy sessions, or be a stand-alone home program.
