The AIT Institute is the #1 Provider off AIT At Home Services globally and is the largest AIT resource website in the world.

AIT is the #1 clinically studied auditory based educational intervention!  All sessions are conveniently completed at home under the supervision of an AIT Practitioner. AIT services are available in the USA, Canada and other English speaking countries.

AIT requires 10 hours of sound therapy, with 20 sessions of 30 minutes each, done 2 times daily over 10 consecutive days.  This listening therapy helps to correct hyperacute hearing,  tinnitus and other auditory challenges.

AIT has been used successfully with children and adults with many different diagnoses for over 60 years.  

Remarkable results are achieved for many families. There are more than 60+ years of clinical research and 28+ scientific studies on AIT.

"I continue to see that Berard Auditory Integration Training is strongly influencing the vestibular system of children who participate. Those children with severe vestibular issues often get "BIG BANG" in positive results after Berard AIT."

The vestibular system is being heavily influenced with the Auditory Integration Training input and that this is what is making the big difference for the Auditory Integration Training candidates who need work on the vestibular system. The vestibular system influences so many areas of the body and their functions. Improving the vestibular area allows an Auditory Integration Training candidate to be more fully functioning human beings.

Many licensed Occupational Therapists who work daily in the trenches with the vestibular system interpret these functional changes seen with Auditory Integration Training to be more of a vestibular influence than anything else.

  • This is because it is not a single muscle doing all that, as the stapedius muscle is simply an efficient mechanical link to get to the vestibular system.

  • The stapedius muscle is a skeletal muscle.

  • This means it is influenced, like the other skeletal muscles for long sustained contractions to keep us upright in space, working against gravity, maintaining our posture and holding positions by the vestibular system.

  • Skeletal muscles are NOT suppose to be under voluntary control.

  • For Auditory Integration Training candidates who have problems with vestibular influence on these muscles, the only way they keep themselves up against gravity is through either constant wiggling or seeking constant external support for posture, by lying on the floor or by leaning on surfaces.

  • The flexor muscle groups, however, are influenced by the red nucleus, not the vestibular system.

  • Flexor muscle groups ARE under voluntary control. They are phasic muscles, meant for sprinting, and are not for sustaining.

  • These flexor group muscles are the muscles we use to do activities such as play with objects, do sports, draw, write, eat, dress ourselves and engage in our environment in so many ways.

  • Working against gravity with the flexor muscle groups are key to motor planning ability.
