Johansen Individualised Auditory Stimulation
Johansen Individualised Auditory Stimulation (JIAS) is a form of sound therapy which is used by the team at bibic. It can be of benefit to children, adolescents and adults with a variety of speech and/or language difficulties, both spoken and written (including specific learning difficulties and dyslexia).
These include difficulties with the following:
• Speech Sounds (pronouncing speech sounds correctly)
• Receptive Language (understanding of language)
• Expressive Language (speaking)
• Auditory Processing
• Written Language (including dyslexia)
• Phonological awareness (awareness of speech sounds)
• Autistic Spectrum Disorders
• Understanding and remembering information and instructions
• Self confidence and self esteem
• Behaviour - when it may be due to poor communication skills
• Hypersensitivity to loud or particular sounds / noises
The JIAS programme involves listening to a series of specially recorded music CDs or tapes, for 10 to 15 minutes per day, for a period of approximately 9 months. The CDs/ tapes can be listened to at any time of the day, through headphones on a personal stereo or on a more sophisticated music centre.
The Irlen Method is a non-invasive technology that uses colored overlays and filters to improve the brain's ability to process visual information. It is the only method scientifically proven to successfully correct the processing problems associated with Irlen Syndrome. www.irlen.com
This technology can improve reading fluency, comprehension, attention and concentration while reducing light sensitivity. This is not a method of reading instruction. It is a colour-based technology that filters out offensive light waves, so the brain can accurately process visual information.
