Auditory Integration Training (AIT)

AuditoryTraining

Often distortions in hearing or auditory processing contribute to behavioral or learning disorders. Auditory Integration Training (AIT) significantly reduces many of the handicaps associated with autism spectrum disorder, central auditory processing disorders, speech and language disorders, sensory issues including auditory, tactile or other sensory sensitivities, dyslexia, pervasive developmental disorder, attention deficit disorder, anxiety, and depression.

Hypersensitive hearing is a condition in which one is extremely bothered by or unable to tolerate ordinary sounds like the wind, running water, certain voices, road traffic, rain, vacuum cleaners and hair dryers. These children often perceive certain frequencies many times louder than others, or two different messages are sent by ears hearing the world in different ways. Common reactions may be fingers in the ears, hands covering ears, humming or tuning out to block sounds, fleeing, head banging, yelling, and having tantrums.

AIT is designed to normalize hearing in the ways in which the brain processes auditory information. For example, an individual tests as hypersensitive to the frequencies of 1,000 and 8,000 hertz while perception of all other frequencies falls within the normal range. The individual becomes over stimulated, disoriented or agitated in the presence of sounds at 1,000 and 8,000 Hertz.

First, your child will need a hearing test to determine if AIT is needed. AIT treatment would be administered in two-half hour sessions per day for ten days consecutively right here in our office. We usually try to schedule over one weekend to minimize your efforts. Contact us to set an appointment for your child.
