Do you have a child that has been diagnosed with autism, dyslexia, auditory processing disorder, apraxia, or any other learning disability? If so, it is likely that they can be helped by Auditory Integration Training. This gentle, noninvasive program involves listening to modulated and filtered music for two 30 minutes sessions a day over a 10 day period. It has been used in Europe for over 40 years and its effectiveness is well researched.
Berard Auditory Integration Training (AIT) is a listening program that reorganizes the sensory center of the brain through use of specialized modified and filtered classical music. Listened to over headphones, AIT reorganizes the hearing and stimulates the brain to improve information processing and decrease auditory processing disorders.
The training program can be given to children as young as six months and many adults also benefit. Improvements may be noted during the 10 days of training, but gains can occur up to six months afterward.
Berard AIT was developed by Guy Berard, MD, a French Ear, Nose, and Throat physician, in Annecy, France, to help with his own severe tinnitus and impending deafness. When he had successfully treated himself, he turned his attention to learning disabled and autistic children with phenomenal success.
Annabel Stehli heard about Dr. Berard and took her severely autistic daughter to France to be treated by him. He was able to cure her child of autism and she went on to acquire two master’s degrees with honors and speak six languages. In 1992, Annabel brought Dr. Berard to the U.S. to train and certify new AIT practitioners.

Susan Bailey was a teacher for 17 years. When she saw how effective AIT was on her own child, she decided to end her teaching career and become a Berard certified AIT practitioner, a profession she has practiced for over 25 years. Susan is also a Berard Certified AIT Trainer through the Georgiana Institute. Her Award-winning book, The Twain Shall Meet, is about Mark Twain's family and is autobiographical. Susan is frequently sought after as a speaker in the U.S. and Europe, talking about the two loves in her life, AIT, and Mark Twain. She holds degrees in Speech & Specific Learning Disabilities
