    Guy Berard, Auditory Integration Training, AIT, Berard AIT, Auditory, Auditory IntegrationDr. Guy Berard of France developed Auditory Integration Training as a procedure to efficiently retrain a disorganized auditory system over 30 years ago. He treated and reviewed cases for over 8,000+ clients during his 40 year career. He is the author of the ground-breaking book "Hearing Equals Behavior". Through his years of research, Dr. Berard determined that when auditory processing is not working correctly, it prohibits the efficient processing of information. Dr. Berard understood that hypersensitivity to sound, hearing distortions and delays in the auditory signals contribute to inefficient learning and his clinical results proved his concept was correct, nearly 50 years ago!

  11. HOW DOES BERARD AIT ACTUALLY WORK?

    Berard AIT uses electronically modulated, randomized and/or filtered music to retrain the ear and auditory system to work properly. Current research confirms that Berard AIT retrains the acoustical reflex (stapedius) muscle of the inner ear. How we listen to and processed auditory information and sound affects our alertness, attention span, concentration, information processing, and the way we express ourselves, both verbally and in writing. When the listening process or the auditory system is not working properly or integrated, it can interfere with our entire system and our ability to function optimally.

  12. WHAT CAN CAUSE THE DAMAGE THAT REQUIRES SOMEONE TO NEED BERARD AIT?

    There are many situations that can result in damage to auditory processing, sound sensitivity, hyposensitive or hypersensitive hearing or hearing distortions in people of all ages. Some of possible causes of sound sensitivity include such things as: birth trauma, repeat ear infections as an infant or young child, frequent use of antibiotics, vaccine injury, the use of ototoxic medications, heavy metal toxicity, exposure to loud noises, head injury, traumatic brain injury, stroke and many other situations.

  13. ARE THERE ANY SUCCESS STORIES ABOUT BERARD AIT?

    Absolutely! Read the many success stories and testimonials written by parents of special needs children and also adults who completed the Berard method of AIT - with remarkable gains!

  14. WHAT HAPPENS AFTER BERARD AIT?

    Once the cause of the auditory processing or hearing problems are corrected - such as hearing distortions, hypersensitive hearing, hyposensitive hearing, sound sensitivity - then other therapies and educational programs become more effective in producing changes that enable the individual to achieve a new level of success.
