iLs’ Clinical Director Ron Minson, MD and CEO Randall Redfield interview Norman Doidge, MD on the release of his book, The Brain’s Way of Healing.

Dr. Doidge is also the author of the best-selling book on neuroplasticity, The Brain that Changes Itself, which describes how the brain is able to change in response to specific and repeated stimulation. In his book, The Brain’s Way of Healing, Dr. Doidge describes a handful of neuroplastic interventions which are supported by clinical evidence and are changing people’s lives.

iLs is one of these interventions, and Dr. Doidge delves into the iLs method by investigating three iLs cases – ADHD, Autism and Sensory Processing Disorder. Hear a sample (full download below):

iLs programs provide gentle and specific stimulation in order to activate the neural pathways used in the processing of sensory information. Neuronal connections in these pathways are strengthened and new connections are established through repeated sessions of multi-sensory input.

iLs trains for brain/body integration through a staged approach, starting with the fundamentals of sensory integration and then extending through more complex cognitive functions, including language, self-expression and social skills. iLs programs can be customized for each person’s therapeutic goals.
