With our clinic programs, clients come to Brain Works and work with a trained clinician. In addition to personal supervision, we have value-added activities for our clients. Visual-motor-balance training while listening is an important part of our in-house program, as it hastens the growth of neural pathways for improved sensory and visual-motor capabilities. Computer-based cognitive training is also provided along with games that challenge the brain. The Integrative Listening Program with exercises for receptive and expressive language skills rounds out the in-house auditory training program at Brain Works.
The in-home programs, the iLs Focus and iLs Kick Start, come in an auditory training kit with a visual-motor program included for greater progress. It is an easy program for people to use, and it has everything you need – the iLs iPod filled with the training program’s classical music, high quality headphones and equipment and instructions for movement activities.
15-minute physical activities are done while listening to the iLs modified music, so that the auditory, visual, motor and vestibular (balance) systems in the body are stimulated in the brain at the same time. Then, the “neurons that fire together, wire together”. Powerful!
