AIT Treatment Guidelines:
Guidelines For Successful AIT Sessions!
On-line AIT Checklist
Ears must be healthy, free of excessive ear wax or discharge and without
active ear infections before and during all AIT Sessions for maximum
All Participants must complete the 30 minute sessions, done
times per day with a minimum of 3 hours between sessions over 10 days - or up to
12 consecutive days. You must complete
all 20 AIT sessions within 12 days. Ideally you will do
it in 10 days, but you may have up to 2 consecutive days off in
the AIT Protocol. If you skip a day, you will skip both sessions for
that day. Do not skip any AIT sessions before Day 5, after both
sessions are done (i.e. after Session #10.)
Level During AIT:
Daily normal activities and routines between the 30 minute AIT sessions
are allow. Sessions may be scheduled at different times each day to
accommodate schedules or if more than one person in the family is doing
We recommend you plan for a less active schedule during the 10 days
of AIT and with an easier schedule during AIT Sessions. This way if
the person feels tired after AIT sessions, they can rest. For example,
a 10 day consecutive period for AIT could be starting on the weekend for
2 days (Saturday + Sunday) then doing 5 days during week (Monday -
Friday) then 2 days of the weekend (Saturday + Sunday) plus the next
Monday. It helps to build a less stressful schedule if four (4) days of
AIT are done without the normal levels for children in school or adults
with work demands.
AIT is an "exercise" for the ears, the hearing function
and the whole auditory system that also stimulates the brain and body
through the delivery of alternating high and low frequencies. Sounds
that were formerly distorted or not processed properly are then received
correctly. During AIT there can be a temporary return of past negative
behaviors, changes in energy, changes in mood including more crying or
sadness, etc. Things that are also reported during AIT sessions are
more tiredness, changes in appetite, thirst, bowels, sleep and even
dreams. These are temporary and signs that the auditory stimulation is
being effective. If you have any reactions that concern you, please
contact us by email.
During And After AIT:
For those with auditory processing issues, anxiety,
autism, dyslexia, focus issues, hyperactivity, memory issues, OCD,
speech delay, sensory issues, etc. watch for improvements in their
key areas. Improvement can begin to happen immediately during AIT
and are signs the stimulation is being effective. These improvements
are lasting and will slowly increase over the next four (4) to six (6)
months after AIT is completed.
AIT sessions need to be in a calm, quiet environment free from other
distractions or stimulation such as bedroom, etc.
Plan for sessions to be "quiet time". Plan and choose a time
daily that is conducive for timing the sessions to be in a calmer time
of day for the participant. If more than one family member is doing
AIT, plan and schedule accordingly.

attend, for temporary use when needed and to protect hearing.
