There is no evidence to indicate that Auditory Integration Training is harmful in any way. No drugs and no surgery are involved with this method.
Is Auditory Integration Training available in many locations in the United States?
Our “In-Home” program makes A.I.T. available everywhere in the world. It is available in the United States, but not in many locations. This method was developed in France and has only been promoted in the U.S. in recent years by such organizations as The Georgiana Organization and the Autism Research Institute.
