When the child receiving Berard AIT is very young or has troubling sensory and behavior challenges, parents often have concerns about how the 10 days (10 hours) of will go. Below are some helpful pointers.

  1. How Well Do Special Needs Children Adjust to Doing Berard AIT?

  2. Influencing Factors for Berard AIT Success

Snacks or drinks can be enjoy BEFORE or AFTER but are NOT allowed during BERARD AIT.

Some parents may use a sticker chart, or offer their child a small "prize" on completion of each day or for a week of AIT sessions as an incentive, though many parents find it not necessary.

How Well Do Special Needs Children Adjust to Doing Berard AIT?

  • The start of AIT is usually much easier than the parent expects it to be!

  • By the third day, itís usually an easy process for even the smallest child.

  • Parents are usually amazed at the way that children tolerate - and enjoy the sessions.

  • Parents and the Practitioner should share ideas, observations and concerns away from the child, over the phone, before and during sessions, as needed.

  • Good communication between the parents and the Practitioner is essential for a smooth experience and success.

Influencing Factors for Berard AIT Success

The factors shown below contribute to a successful experience with Berard AIT for children of all ages, whether they have a special needs diagnosis, or not:

  • The parent encouraging, positive and a matter-of-fact approach.

  • The parent expressing confidence in the child and in the process.

  • The parent practicing with headphones at home before the Berard AIT.
    Many children will do very well without any practice; parents will be able to best determine this for their own child.

  • Parentís willingness to make Auditory Integration Training a priority, as the 10 (or 12) days of sessions can significantly help all other learning and therapy experiences.

  • Other appointments and activities may be best delayed for this week and a half, so as not to over-load a child and family.

  • The parent should  decide keep options open when possible in the schedule to allow for fatigue and rest during AIT.

  • The comfortable atmosphere and tone that is set for the sessions.

  • Use a comfortable space with soft, pleasing and soothing textures .

  • Lighting may be made most comfortable, and a special pillow or blanket or a favorite soft towel

  • Supervised At Home AIT services are now available in many areas, making AIT at home convenient in a comfortable home setting.

The goal of success with AIT if to support each child for a comfortable and successful experience.

What helps one child to have a comfortable AIT experience can be very different from what helps another.
