Berard AIT: Dramatic Improvements!
Testimonial written by the mother of a 7 year
old boy diagnosed with Auditory Processing Disorder and Sensory Processing Disorder.

"Our son's hypersensitivity to noise improved dramatically after doing AIT
even at the midpoint, which was after only 10 out of the 20 sessions. AIT
works! AIT is without any doubt the most effective therapy for hyperacute
hearing and the fastest."
Son's AIT Story
before our son turned 7, in addition to a
disorder diagnosis, he was
also diagnosed with Auditory Processing Disorder (APD)
by a well known audiologist in our state who was a specialist in APD.
Sadly, we understand now in
clear hindsight that both these diagnosis were related to the
severe damage caused to his auditory system and brain functions, due to the
antibiotics he was prescribed and
the toxic heavy metals, including mercury and aluminum, that are found in the many
childhood vaccinations that he received from our pediatrician.
AIT was the
recommendation of the audiologist. and we immediately scheduled
Berard AIT that same month, beginning in October
His treatment was simple and painless and involved him calmly sitting
and listening to filtered music played from the AIT system
while wearing a pair of high quality headphones for 30 minutes, 2 times per
day. There was a minimum of 3 hours in between the sessions.
I (his mother) took him out of school to make the sessions easier and got a
babysitter for his younger sibling who was a toddler at the time. We used that
time between sessions to spend with him doing something, just the two of
us - which was nice and made the idea of AIT more "fun" for him.
He had 20 sessions of
AIT over 12 days with a weekend in between sessions 10
and 11 (day 5 and day 6). Some families do
AIT in 10 days, but we finished in the
required 12 or less.
I was glad we decided to take
him out of school to simplify his and our schedules and so that we could focus on his AIT
treatment for those days, without school or other social activities.
Our son finished his 20th AIT treatment, the day after
he turned 7 years old.
AIT turned out to be the best birthday gift of his life!
Our Results Immediately After AIT Were Dramatic!
Our son's hypersensitivity to noise improved dramatically after doing AIT
even at the midpoint, which was after only 10 out of the 20 sessions.
Within a few weeks of finishing AIT, we have already documented so many positive
emotional, academic and social improvements to date, including:
a consistently better mood
improved expressive language
better school performance
increased reading level ability
faster response time
better over-all social
Our son also has greatly reduced his remaining sensory symptoms and
behaviors since AIT.
He is generally much calmer and less "sensory seeking" in proprioceptive
and vestibular areas.
He no longer exhibits the sensory behaviors that included tactile
defensiveness and a high need for oral stimulation.
about one most from finishing AIT, we saw
even more changes.
The experienced audiologist that we
had consulted regarding his
shifts after AIT sessions was impressed with his progress and told us
that we could expect these auditory shifts were "very
significant". She said these changes would be permanent and would last as long as we
did not allow him
use headphones for listening to music
but that books on tape or language tapes would be allowed.
School Testing Before and After AIT
When he was tested two weeks prior to AIT by his public school for
phonemic awareness, he scored very low, in only the 30% range. (A
phoneme means the distinct units of sound that distinguish
one word from another, for example p, b, d, and t in
the English words like in the words pad, pat, bad, and
after starting AIT, having missed the 10 days of public school to do this intervention, he was re-tested by his school and scored now in the 70%
range for phonemic awareness. (Amazing!! As you may imagine, sadly,
at our own local school district, none of the staff or teachers there had even heard of
- or sensory processing disorder at that time...and they asked us "Wow - what did you do??")
We were advised the full impact of AIT will take
six months to one year and
that these positive changes would continue to manifest themselves.
Considering the improvements we've already seen, we are thrilled with the
possibility that even more may be forthcoming!
But for us
as parents, as importantly, our bright and curious boy was better.
He had already suffered in his young life so much and tolerated auditory assaults from
hypersensitive hearing. Now that this has been fixed, we notice that he
also has better self-esteem
since completing AIT.
Our son's results are well in line with the positive results with AIT
documented in the
28 clinical studies done by the Autism Research Institute
Bottom line for us: AIT works!
AIT was without any doubt the most effective therapy for hyperacute hearing.
We had spent many, many months researching other therapies for APD and SPD,
exhausting ourselves, depleting finances and draining our family's energy on
other interventions, assessments, evaluations and therapies for healing our son
using other medical professionals in the process. AIT was our solution - it
worked well and it worked fast.
If you are reading this article, you have come to the right website. We
recommend that any family whose child has with issues that AIT can address -
including auditory processing,
sensory issues and who is interested in
Berard AIT to learn more about it - you
will never regret it!
Post AIT Update Twelve Years After AIT, Summer 2016 After His High School
"His hearing is still
perfect. There are no auditory issues since we did
AIT almost 13 years ago. Our
son is now 18 and is 6' 7" and 225 pounds of strength, focus, health and
vitality! He has also used homeopathic medicine
throughout his life. There have been zero further vaccinations since age 4, no suppressive medications,
no prescription drugs. He has only used
homeopathy and nutritional supplements since he 6 years old.
He is now college bound to
a Christian university in southern California at the end of August,
where he will play college basketball and run track while he studies in college. His name
translates to me mean "bringing light" and his future is
bright. AIT was the
first light that showed us the way on his path.
His public high school
career included being an honor roll student all 4 years. He was an active member
of the campus high school Christian club. He became a focused,
powerful and dedicated athlete. He played varsity basketball all four
years of high school and was the Team Co-captain for two years and was
named the "Most Valuable
Basketball Player" both his junior and senior year. He also
played on several NJB and AAU basketball competitive basketball teams for 6
He was named
"Athlete of Year" both his junior and senior year for the high school. He
played on the volleyball team for two years. All his coaches loved his work
ethic and he did track and field is junior and senior year, including
many running events, hurdles, shot put and matched the high school record for pole vaulting,
competing at the CCS finals for it. He was named "Most
Valuable Track Athlete"
for the Track and Field team his senior year.
remains an early riser,
loves the outdoors, is a mountain and road biker, a hiker, an excellent snow and
water skier, plus a surfer. He has become a creative chef who
understands that value of home cooked, whole foods and good nutrition. He still uses
homeopathy on a regular basis
for acutes and sports injuries.
He is fun - and funny - and little kids
He loves doing and teaching sports and has turned his passion into working as a coach in summer basketball camp programs, including
coaching children with learning differences and special needs. He is a creative soul, a good son,
a dutiful brother. He has grown to become a leader and a supporter of those less
fortunate than himself.
God has blessed him beyond measure - and us, as his parents and family on our amazing
