What is iLs?

Integrated learning systems is a multisensory program developed by Ron Minson, MD, a board-certified psychiatrist, and neurologist. The goal of iLs is to combine vestibular, visual, and movement activities to activate neural pathways and optimize the way your child processes sensory information.

What are the benefits of iLs?

Choosing iLs at Solaris Pediatric Therapy can help your child make improvements in:

  • Listening
  • Focus
  • Paying attention
  • Auditory processing disorder
  • Reading difficulties
  • Other learning problems
  • Pitch discrimination/phonemic awareness
  • Self-esteem
  • Speech and language skills
  • Alertness

iLs may reduce the need for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or attention-deficit disorder (ADD) medications that can contribute to unwanted side effects. It helps children improve their grades, auditory processing skills, language skills, social relationships, and overall quality of life.

Is iLs right for my child?

To determine if iLs is the right therapy for your child, the Solaris Pediatric Therapy team reviews their medical history. They ask questions about your child’s cognitive, physical, social, and emotional strengths and weaknesses.

Solaris Pediatric Therapy providers complete a comprehensive evaluation to find a solution that best matches your child’s personalized needs. Because each child is unique, so is their iLs treatment plan.

The iLs Safe & Sound Protocol (SSP™) is a noninvasive solution that can reduce stress and auditory sensitivity and optimize social resilience and engagement.

What happens during iLs therapy?

When your child arrives for an appointment at Solaris Pediatric Therapy, they’re greeted by friendly staff. Their provider gives them specialized headphones to wear during treatment.

The headphones send gentle bone conduction frequencies throughout their body while they engage in physical movement and listen to music. iLs therapy is designed to be fun for children.

Solaris Pediatric Therapy experts might recommend iLs protocols your child can complete from the comfort of home, too. They let you know how many treatment sessions your child may need to achieve the best outcome.

To help your child thrive with enhanced brain function, more maturity, better focus, improved confidence, and a better quality of life, request a consultation with Solaris Pediatric Therapy online or over the phone to learn more about iLs.
