The Moore Auditory Integration Training Method is unique in its efforts to:
Use the Moore Auditory-Visual Questionnaire Report to help individuals advocate for hearing tests specific to their needs;
Use activities to learn about additional areas of visual processing concerns;
Use videos to help individuals, parents, and professionals learn about the need for comprehensive hearing and visual evaluations to guide an intervention program;
Use comprehensive hearing and visual test results to develop an individualized Auditory-Visual Training protocol to improve client’s ability to respond and maintain progress during and after auditory integration training and vision therapy;
Use auditory test results to develop an In-home, Berard-Based Auditory Integration Training program and track progress;
Use past or ongoing medical history, genetic condition, history of injuries, and neurodevelopment diagnosis to improve client’s ability to respond to auditory integration training and vision therapy;
Use follow-up hearing test results and visual progress reports to track progress, and guide second auditory integration training program;
Use evidenced-based, peer-review research
Use vestibular-based activities, counseling, and educational information in the areas of diet and nutrition to improve the brain’s ability to respond to intervention while minimizing negative behavioral responses.
AUDITORY INTEGRATED TRAINING
Auditory Integration Training or AIT was developed by Dr. Guy Berard, a practicing otolaryngologist (Ear, Nose, and Throat or ENT physician) in Annecy, France. Dr. Berard originally invented AIT to rehabilitate disorders of the auditory system, such as hearing loss or hearing distortion (hyper-acute or asymmetrical hearing). The Moore Auditory Integration Training Method is the result of the developer’s desire to meet Dr. Berard’s challenge to build upon his work and enhance client’s ability to respond and maintain the benefits of auditory integration training.
WHO CAN BENEFIT?
Dr. Berard developed A.I.T. to help people of all ages without disabilities, as well as those diagnosed with:
- Dyslexia/learning disabilities
- ADD & ADHD
- Autism & PDD
I have found individuals mentioned below benefit when A.I.T. is combined with additional help:
- Central Auditory Processing Disorder/CAPD
- Individuals having difficulty wearing their hearing aids
- Individuals with expressive language difficulties
- Individuals with sound intolerance
- Individuals with academic, social, and/or emotional difficulties
