Dr. Guy Berard,
now retired, was an accomplished Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) medical
doctor of Annecy, France for over 40 years. Dr. Guy Berard

initially developed Auditory Integration Training to treat conductive
hearing loss. The Berard
AIT method is an effective way to changing hearing thresholds
and perceptions by a non-pharmaceutical approach.
He developed the much more
efficient and highly successful Berard
AIT method, based upon the contemporary
work of Dr.
Dr. Berard treated
over 8,000 clients in his long career.
During his many years of practice, Dr. Berard
identified 2,300 whom he felt would benefit specifically
His amazing book (now out of print, but well worth
finding!) called "Hearing
Equals Behavior" documents the results from clients
coming to his own medical practice.
|Quote From Dr. Guy
"To claim to have cured hyperactivity or dyslexia, widely regarded as
"emotional" or "mental" conditions, simply by training the ear to be
either more or less responsive to particular sound frequencies seems, on
the face of it, implausible and extravagant.
However, thirty years of
clinical work, research and follow-up on more than
2,100 patients and study of more than
8,000 auditory cases, verifies the claim.
Of the 1,850 learning/behavior problems patients,
three-quarters showed very positive results
and the remainder demonstrated noticeable partial improvement;
none failed to show some benefit."

Berard writes these comments about
his treating his own deafness:
"When I was treating my own deafness,
more than 40 years ago with the
Tomatis device under the direction of Tomatis himself, there were
absolutely no rules, neither for me nor for the other patients. Each
session could last 1, 2, or 3 hours, and this could be everyday, every 2
days, every week, 2 or 3 times a day, for a total of 50, 100, 150, 300
After I built my first
Auditory Integration Training (AIT) device,
and because of the lack of uniformity with
Tomatis's method, I decided to
determine the best way to obtain the optimal results, in the minimum
amount of time, while considering the various aspects of the problem.
Yet, I was always concerned with the efficiency."
proceeded to undergo his own treatment with
Dr. Alfred Tomatis. His own
hearing loss was stopped and even reversed by using this method of
Dr. Berard then began research to improve the process
in the interest of efficiency and advancement of this
method and. He thus researched and developed his device called the
Audiokinetron which was used
successfully for years for Berard AIT.
