What is Auditory Integration Training (AIT)
Auditory Integration Training (AIT) is a sound-based program that efficiently retrains a disorganized auditory system, creating balanced and effective listening.
Berard AIT is an educational intervention that was developed by Dr. Guy Berard. The Berard method of AIT is supported by years of clinical studies and scientific research, with reports published in peer-reviewed journals.
Berard AIT may enhance skill and abilities in the following areas:
- Expressive language
- Receptive language
- Sensory integration
- Cognitive skills
- Other language, developmental and behavioral disorders
