AIT is a remarkable, life changing and efficient educational intervention with over 50 years of clinical research and 28+ scientific studies that prove its effectiveness!

AIT is efficient with a total of 10 hours, 20 sessions of 30 minutes each, done 2 times daily over 10 or 12 consecutive days.  Berard AIT is a music therapy that  efficiently corrects hyperacute hearing and other auditory challenges.

AIT  permanently corrects   auditory distortions,   hyperacute hearing or painful  hearing issues common to the diagnoses of ADHD, Anxiety, Auditory Processing Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorders,  Depression,  Dyslexia,  OCD,  PANDAS / PANS, Sensory Processing Disorder, Speech and Language Delay, Vaccine Injury and other diagnoses.

What Is Auditory Processing Disorder?

There are hidden, often unrecognized symptoms or issues of Auditory Processing Disorder (APD), which is also referred to as Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD). Looking and acting normal, those who have this condition hear with distortion and/or other delays. Often, a person with APD will hear differently in one ear than the other or from one frequency to another, making it difficult and slow to understand and process speech and language. It can be particularly difficult when people with APD are trying to hear someone but unable to focus due to competing background noise getting in the way. They will often either keep asking a person to repeat what they are saying or sometimes just give up. Some people call this “cocktail party syndrome”, also known as “sound field discrimination” difficulties.

For  some people it can seem like hearing underwater. For them, some sounds come in loud and clear while other sounds are delayed, muffled or unclear. People don’t necessarily know they are hearing differently than others because they only know that they hear what they hear.

If someone sees differently in one eye than the other, or with distortion in their visual field, obviously there is a problem and it is recognized more quickly and easily. However, most audiologists are trained to look only for hearing loss unless they have special training to evaluate and diagnose auditory processing disorder.

The Key Components to Auditory Processing Disorder

  • The auditory system and how clearly and accurately it receives and interprets the auditory stimulation of sounds; otherwise called receptive language. If somebody does not hear clearly or accurately it makes it hard to understand what is being said. After a while people begin to guess or lip read to compensate, but are not hearing accurately.

  • The vibration of sound frequencies stimulates neural pathways in the brain. If these pathways and the neural processes are not accurate this can create another neurological element so that the person may take longer to pick up and interpret what is being said. By the time they have understood and figured out what word was being said the person may be several words along and they’ve missed a significant portion of the conversation.  Auditory Dyslexia as noted by Dr. Paula Tallal’s research at Rutger’s University (https://www.newark.rutgers.edu/paula-tallal) means there can be a slight delay in the hearing or the brain’s processing such that the person will miss key critical fast sounds. For example, the word “cat” may be heard without the “c” if too fast to catch – then the person has to guess what was said. Was it "fat"? "Mat"? "That"? "Pat"? etc.

  • For good expressive language abilities, neural pathways in the brain need to go in the correct direction and the speech center of the brain needs to be developed in order to express oneself verbally.  Sometimes these pathways are not going in the right direction or not developed properly.

The Development of Auditory Integration Training
Berard AIT was developed by Dr. Berard in France, over 50 years ago, is very helpful and successful in most cases of APD and CAPD. 

Berard Auditory Integration Training is a safe, non-invasive approach that helps by normalizing the hearing and the way the brain processes information.  The AIT Institute now offers At Home AIT services throughout the USA and Canada. The music therapy consists of 20 sessions that are completed over 10 or 12 consecutive days. Each session requires the participant listen to dynamic and attenuated music for 30 minutes, twice a day. There is a three (3) hour minimum time span between sessions on each day.

The AIT Institute's Online Listening Test For AIT
For those candidates who can comply, including children over the age of six and without autism, plus teens and adults, we now offer an online AIT Listening Test. This Listening Test checks a persons actual hearing and maps it out on an audiogram. The audio graph of the test results will show which frequencies have peaks and valleys, and in both ears. The test is easily and conveniently done at home, using headphones and a computer.

When completed, the Listening Test results are provided so that both the candidate and the Practitioner can see which  peaks and valleys in hearing that are out of normal range, for both ears. The audiogram also helps to document how the candidate processes sound before AIT. Once AIT is completed, a second test with an audiogram can be done that documents the shifts that have been achieved after the 20 AIT sessions.

  • AIT has more than 28+ clinical studies that prove its effectiveness. It's been done on thousands and thousands of children and adults around the world for the past 50 years. 

  • Prior to the AIT Institute offering At Home AIT, clients had to travel and spend the time in a Practitioner's office to receive the benefits of AIT. The cost in the United States for In Office, supervised AIT sessions ranges from about $1,500 - $2,000.

  • The newest AIT system for At Home AIT use has now been developed and it allows candidates to benefit from AIT, more affordably, more conveniently and more comfortably, right at home. Our At Home AIT service eliminates the additional expense and inconvenience of daily travel, twice a day, for AIT sessions.

AIT works! There are many remarkable success stories and videos plus and testimonials from families who have benefited from AIT at www.AITinstitute.org.
