|"Fabien's Chicago sound therapy helped me address my ADHD symptoms and dramatically improve my work performance. Fabien was extremely knowledgable about sound therapy and guided me through the entire process." -J.P., 29 years old.ADHD
Sound therapy really works! One of the teachers of my son's class is a specialist who supports deaf and hearing impaired students. She suggested that an auditory processing problem could be the reason why the perfect articulation he achieved in speech therapy sessions was not transferring to classroom conversation. I researched sound therapy and it looked like he would be a good candidate. The initial listening test showed specific frequencies that needed attention so we focused on the program targeting them. It does take time and commitment to complete all the sessions, so we really appreciated the flexibility of renting the unit so that we could fit listening sessions into our busy schedule. Even before completing the program, the teachers noticed improvement in his self-correction and improved articulation in casual conversation. By the end of the program he was no longer receiving any speech/language support services at school, he is also able to use rhyming patterns to figure out how to spell words, and even sings better!
Thank you!James K. 8 years old.
"Because of iLs, I feel less anxious throught daily life, more clear headed. My thought process is less "Foggy" more decisive and deliberate. I also have a great appreciation for classical music! It's great! I believe iLs has helped me develope my listening ear. I hear tones and sounds throughout my day that I didn't pick up before. This has helped me relate to my work a lot better. I am calmer and happier" Julie M. 24 years old -ADHD.Chicago Sound Therapy was founded by Susan L.
