iLs (Integrated Listening Systems)

What is iLS:

iLs (Integrated Listening Systems) is based on the fact that we can change our brain – we can essentially re-wire 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.

iLs trains for brain/body integration through a staged approach. Starting with the fundamentals of sensory integration and then extending through to more complex cognitive functions, including language, self-expression, and social skills.

“What we are doing, by targeting subcortical functions, is improving brain organization from the bottom up.”
– Ron Minson, MD, iLs Clinical Director, in The Brain’s Way of Healing by Norman Doidge, MD.

How is iLS delivered:

iLS delivers music through a portable iPod via specifically designed headphones with bone conduction. To improve the neurological foundation for sensory integration, classical music has been digitally manipulated to specific frequencies and vibrations which stimulate various parts of the brain.

Anderley offers a customized iLs Program. Generally, the program is delivered once or twice a week by the therapist in a 30 – 60 minute session. It is recommended that this is supported by home use 2 – 3 times a week. iLs home system can be rented via Anderley on a rent to own basis. For further information please contact Beverley.
