AUDITORY INTEGRATION TRAINING (AIT)





Berard Auditory Integration Training (AIT) is for individuals (from age three to ninety) with hypersensitivity to sound, lack of awareness of sound, and the inability to discriminate sound differences.


Berard AIT builds the foundation for good hearing by “retraining” how a person hears. Research indicates that if sound is partially blocked or is painful, successive flexing and extension of the middle ear muscles will increase their mobility and decrease pain. This stimuli influences portions of the brain that correlate with our auditory pathways. AIT randomly introduces low and high pitched sounds to the auditory system, increasing blood flow to the brain, adding to the overall positive effect. Therapy consists of 20 half hour sessions (twice daily for ten days).

AIT is recommended when the need is demonstrated by the
Diagnostic Evaluation Therapy Protocol (DETP®).

AIT can benefit many people with disorders that directly or indirectly are effected by their hearing (according to years of research by Dr. Berard). Common problems addressed include symptoms associated with: Autism, Dyslexia, AD/HD, PDD, Central Auditory Processing problems, Fluency problems, hypersensitivity to sound, hyposensitivity to sound (tuning out sounds) and other disabilities and developmental delays. Please note, it is not the disorder that is helped, but the function of one’s hearing sense.

AIT is offered at The Davis Center in Succasunna, New Jersey or at our specially arranged Outreach locations.

Contact The Davis Center at 862-251-4637, 9:30 am to 5:30 pm, Monday through Friday, Eastern Standard Time to schedule an evaluation. Or email
npdunn@thedaviscenter.com.



Sound-based therapies are not medical treatments. They do not cure or treat medical disease conditions. They work on supporting change in learning, development, and wellness. The Davis Center does not diagnose or prescribe for medical or psychological conditions; nor does it claim to prevent, treat, mitigate or cure such conditions; nor provide diagnosis, care, treatment or rehabilitation of individuals or apply medical, mental health or human development principles beyond the scope of professional practice.
