Integrated listening systems are methods that help with the co-ordination of sight, sound and movement in a person. They involve the brain and senses in coordinating a person’s self-regulation and adaptation to stimulus from the external world. Studies have shown that sensory deficiency or overload can result in delayed or incomplete development in a person.
It has been shown that the central nervous systems of people are closely connected to some disorders including Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), auditory processing disorders, speech and language disorders and others that result in a failure to process and organize sensory information. The integrated listening system is a method for retraining the auditory system to help it make connections with sight and movement in order to organize sensory input correctly. The consequences of a disorganized central nervous system can result in developmental issues including behavioral, emotional and learning difficulties.
