Success Stories

What is AIT/DAA?

Auditory Integration Training (AIT) - Digital Auditory Aerobics (DAA) is an educational intervention. AIT/DAA consists of 10 hours (20 sessions) within a two-week period, under the supervision of professionally trained AIT/DAA Providers who follow a protocol developed by Dr. Guy Berard.

The ten days of AIT/DAA training is designed to remediate impairments in auditory discrimination in children and adults with hyperacute hearing and auditory processing problems. The training consists of filtered and randomly modulated music heard through headphones for 1/2-hour, twice a day, for a total of ten days. Side effects, if any, are temporary, and beneficial results continue to cumulate over a three- to six-month period. The training may be repeated yearly if any regression is noticed. AIT/DAA is categorized by the FDA as an educational intervention, and may not be covered by insurance.

Measurable Results

Audiograms screen clients who may benefit from AIT/DAA and document results - before training, at the midpoint, and after training. Audiograms are also used for settings that tailor the training specifically for each client. Tailoring increases the effectiveness depending on the type of condition and how it affects auditory processing, such as: Autism, Attention Deficit Disorder, Central Auditory Processing Disorder, Dyslexia, and more.

Effectiveness

Independent research studies validate the effectiveness of auditory training. AIT/DAA training strengthens the small muscles of the middle ear and establishes new neural pathways in the brain, enabling the client to listen and process sounds more normally. AIT/DAA stimulates the neuroplasticity of the brain to improve cognitive functions (i.e., listening, attention, concentration, self-control, symbol recognition, body awareness, balance, etc.)

Auditory Training

AIT/DAA is a safe and effective intervention that retrains a disorganized auditory system and improves hearing distortions and sound sensitivity. AIT/DAA has been proven highly successful for clients with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), sensory processing disorder (SPD), learning disabilities including attention deficit disorder (ADD), central auditory processing disorder (CAPD), hypersensitive hearing, and other auditory related problems.

Safe, Scientific Protocol

AIT is an educational intervention used and developed by Dr. Guy Berard. Auditory Integration Training is based on a scientific protocol and has more than 30 years of proven results. Over 20 independent research studies document the efficacy of AIT. The decibel levels used during the music training sessions are always kept at a safe level to protect hearing function and improve auditory processing.

Ten Hours of Auditory Training

Clients listen through high-quality head phones to modulated music from an AIT/DAA device for 20 sessions of 30 minutes each, for a total of 10 hours of auditory training within a two-week period. An approved device and specifically filtered and modulated music in accordance with the AIT/DAA protocol must be used to ensure that effective results can be achieved.

Supervised Sessions

AIT/DAA Sessions are provided under the supervision of therapists and other trained professionals or certified AIT/DAA Providers. The minimum recommended age for AIT/DAA is 3 years old and there is no maximum age. Both children and adults with various types of auditory processing problems, including hyperacute or hypersensitive hearing can benefit tremendously from AIT/DAA.
