Retraining the Auditory System: (Ait – Berard Method)

AIT is a procedure that trains children to listen more accurately. Dynamic music with a wide range of frequencies is processed through a system of filters in the AIT device. This auditory stimulus activates the listening abilities which then open up to the whole sound spectrum in a coordinated and efficient manner. It works as a sensory therapy or hearing re-education for individuals with either hyper or hypo acute hearing.

The primary goal of AIT is to normalize the receiving of auditory stimuli and assist in remediation of auditory processing difficulties. The process recognizes the dysfunctional sensory center so that the brain no longer gets overloaded with disorganized information. AIT is regarded as one of the most effective approaches available for enhanced listening skills, language learning and sound tolerance.
