Does your child struggle to listen and follow instructions? Do they have trouble remembering what they hear, or seem easily distracted in noisy environments? If so, your child may be experiencing difficulties with auditory processing, which can have a significant impact on their learning and development.
At Central Vision Opticians, we understand how frustrating it can be for parents to see their child struggle with learning difficulties. That's why we offer JIAS therapy, a revolutionary approach to auditory processing disorders that can help your child hear better, learn better, and reach their full potential.
What is JIAS Therapy?
JIAS (Johansen Individualized Auditory Stimulation) therapy is a form of sound therapy that is customized to meet the specific needs of your child. Through a comprehensive assessment process, we identify your child's unique auditory profile and develop a personalised therapy plan that includes daily listening to therapy music.
The therapy involves listening to individualised sound stimuli that are designed to improve auditory processing and sensory integration. Over time, JIAS therapy can help your child develop better listening skills, improve memory and attention, and enhance overall cognitive function.
How does JIAS therapy work?
JIAS therapy is based on the principle of neuroplasticity, which suggests that the brain can change and adapt in response to environmental stimuli. The therapy involves delivering specific sound frequencies and patterns to the ear through headphones, which are customised to meet the individual needs of your child's auditory system. These sound stimuli are designed to stimulate neural connections in the brain and improve auditory processing, sensory integration, memory, and attention. As your child listens to the therapy music daily, their brain is gradually rewired to process sounds more efficiently and effectively, leading to significant improvements in their ability to learn and communicate.
What Are the Signs of Auditory Processing Difficulties?
Parents often notice signs of auditory processing difficulties in their child's behaviour, such as:
- Difficulty following instructions, especially in noisy environments
- Frequent misunderstandings or asking for repetition
- Struggling to remember what they have heard
- Difficulty with language and communication skills
- Behavioural issues, such as being easily distracted or becoming overwhelmed in noisy environments
If you have noticed any of these signs in your child, it's important to seek help. Early intervention can make a significant difference in your child's development and future success.
How Long Does JIAS Therapy Take?
JIAS therapy typically takes about 10 months to complete, with daily listening to therapy music required for optimal results. While the therapy does require a commitment of time and effort, the benefits can be life-changing for your child.
Our team at Central Vision Opticians will work closely with you and your child throughout the therapy process, providing guidance and support every step of the way. We are committed to helping your child succeed and achieve their full potential.
