Integrated Listening Systems (iLs)

Integrated Listening Systems (iLs) Cardinal Kids ProgramsDr. Ron Minson and his wife, Kate O’Brien Minson, after looking for a solution to their daughter’s dyslexia, developed Integrated Listening Systems. During their search they found success using Dr. Tomatis’s sound therapy and found their daughter’s improvements to be significant. As a result, Dr. Minson went to study under Dr. Tomatis to incorporate sound therapy into his own practice and later developed his own sound therapy system. Integrated Listening Systems (iLs) is a less intensive sound therapy program combined with visual and motor activities. This program is typically done 3-5 times per week, both in the clinic and at home. Because it is less intensive, it takes longer to complete the program, but can be just as effective. The sound is delivered by both air and bone conduction. By providing appropriate auditory as well as visual and motor stimulation, iLs helps the nervous system develop and efficiently process sensory information. As a result we see improvements in attention, reading and math skills, auditory processing, communication, memory, organization, planning, emotional regulation and self-esteem.
