Reflexes Therapy with Hemispheres and AIT with Sound Learning Centre

(11 Posts)

DS is 5 with lots of issues. Mild but enough to hinder his progress in school and in sports.

We are considering retained reflexes therapy and the Auditory Integration Training. 

I've seen other posts recommending Hemispheres is quite good at the retained reflexes therapy. Is that the case? Would you recommend any other places in Herts or London from your experience?

About AIT, the odd thing is, I've seen lots of post related to Sound Learning Centre. But when I search the post from the past year, it seems very little result found. Is it simply because no discussion about it? Or any negative news about it which I haven't picked up?

If nothing, can someone who has done AIT with Sound Learning Centre for their children let me know if the progress made has been retained over time or not? Or only temporary?

Any response is appreciated!

I know nothing about AIT, but this wiki link may give pause for thought:

We did (berard) AIT the home program. Which suited us because we could do it before and after school. I think it helped, all of a sudden speech therapy took off and anxiety and noise sensitivity reduced.

We were doing retained reflex therapy at the same time (bob Allen Windsor. I think he might do a clinic in herts too). There have been big improvements with anxiety, sensory stuff, bike riding, dry at night, reading, writing, speaking... etc etc

I would say if you can find the cash I’d give it a go but it doesn’t come cheap!

EeAicheCeePee Thank you. For some reason, the search link within Mumsnet gave way more result than when I did it. I found a few more recent ones. Thanks!

abc12345 Thank you too. I've got in touch with hemispheres and got the price list - it's extremely expensive for the assessment alone! I came across Bob's name a few times and realised that we nearly went for him last year when we were looking at the Johansen IAS. Very keen to get in touch with him, as he does reflexes therapy and the auditory treatment. Only he's quite far from ours. But not impossible to drive there... Many thanks again!

I would get in touch with him. I’m sure he does a clinic somewhere else and he has trained others so you could ask him where they are based. Yes he does do both

Yeah, posting a mobile number online probably isn't the best idea.

captainkurks Hi, I believe the mobile number abc has posted is available online to public. I found that same number on Johansen IAS's website for registered provider.

Thanks, abc, very thoughtful of you. smile

captainkirks, sorry for the typo. Not the easiest thing using my phone to do anything!

Oh good, then I apologise.
