iLs & Physiotherapy

iLs is natural fit for Physiotherapy practices, whether in clinic, school or home environments. In addition to enhancing a Physiotherapists sensory integration work, it is also an effective rehab tool and is easily customized for different therapeutic objectives, program lengths, and client needs.

How do I integrate iLs into my Physiotherapy practice?

iLs is a flexible therapy which is done simultaneously with physiotherapy activities in the clinic, school and/or home.

  • The 3 components of iLs: auditory, motor and interactive language – can be used together or independently, depending upon the situation and the needs of the individual. Most paediatric physiotherapists use the iLs auditory component simultaneous with their regular activities, and take specific pieces of the iLs motor program as applicable.
  • Clinic Programs: Most clinic programs involve 15-40 sessions, with each session being 30-60 minutes in length.
  • Clinic + Home Programs: To supplement the frequency of clinic therapy, iLs has a rental program for your clients. iLs handles the equipment, shipping, etc. and you oversee the therapy. More frequency = better results.
  • School Programs: iLs can be combined with physiotherapy in a school setting very effectively. School personnel can be trained to conduct iLs sessions in the absence of the therapist so that the frequency required for improvement may occur. For specifics on school implementation please see the Educator page or contact iLs.

Who Benefits from iLs

Mother and daughter looking at each otheriLs has a global effect on the brain and central nervous system.  As a result, it is successfully integrated into a wide variety of programs:

Understanding iLs and how it works

iLs is based on the fact that we can change our brain – we can essentially re-wire it through specific and repeated stimulation, a concept known as neuroplasticity.  As in building strength and endurance with physical exercise, we can build neurological pathways and synaptic activity at any age.   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.

What is iLs?

iLs is a complementary approach to brain fitness which can be integrated into a broad variety of educational, therapeutic and self-improvement programs. In the same way we can train our bodies to become stronger and healthier, iLs trains the brain to process sensory, cognitive and emotional information more effectively. With better synaptic connectivity, we perform better. It’s about as simple as that.

We start with music and movement, and then gradually integrate language and cognitive processes. The exercises appear simple but become increasingly difficult as we add new layers for simultaneous processing. The program involves no computers or screens of any type. Someone once referred to iLs as “a boot camp for the brain.” We’d like to think of it more as play, and we all know we work hardest when we play!
