Do you find everywhere you go that the noise is just TOO much? Are you misunderstanding what you have heard, have trouble filtering out background noise (e.g. clock ticking, others chewing), or experience sound overload? Hypersensitivity (hyperacusis) to sound can be frustrating and exhausting to say the least!
However, there is something you can do. Berard Auditory Integration Training (AIT) is a listening program that reorganizes the sensory center of the brain through use of a specific program of modified and filtered music. In the process, it actually helps our brains, through neuroplasticity, to improve connectivity and sound processing.
When we can hear, process and comprehend in an integrated manner without becoming overloaded with information, life is less complicated. AIT can help improve a broad variety of challenges for both adolescents and adults, from difficulty sustaining attention and sound hypersensitivity, to speech and language delays, physical coordination such as balance, and difficulty remembering. You may think, what can we possibly improve by simply sitting and listening to special music at targeted frequencies? A great deal, if using specialized training approach like Berard Auditory Integration Training.
