Brain Processing Problems

Strategies for Success offers three programs specifically designed to strengthen brain processing
 

Many times learning struggles are rooted in brain processing problems. When we address the underlying weakness in processing, students are able to make gains in learning. 

 

Newer research has shown 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 are able to build neurological pathways and synaptic activity at any age.

 

 

Integrated Listening Program

 

The notion that the brain is able to change in response to stimulation, an ability known as “neuroplasticity,” is now so widely accepted it can be called fact. iLs programs are based on this principle, providing 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 programs are customized, i.e. individualized for each person’s therapeutic goals.

 

iLs is commonly used for those with ASD, ADHD, APD, Dyslexia, SPD, learning difficulties, developmental delays, anxiety, TBI and CVA.

 

  •  Sensory Processing and Emotional Regulation

  • Concentration and Attention

  • Auditory Processing and Reading

 

Safe Sound Protocol

Developed by Dr. Stephen Porges, the Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) is a five-day auditory intervention designed to reduce stress and auditory sensitivity while enhancing social engagement and resilience. Based on Dr. Porges’ Polyvagal Theory, by calming the physiological and emotional state, the door is opened for improved communication and more successful therapy.

The SSP is a research-based therapy showing significant results in just five days in the following areas:

  • Social and emotional difficulties

  • Auditory sensitivities

  • Anxiety and trauma-related challenges

  • Inattention

  • Stressors that impact social engagement

 

Versus Features

 

Wireless Brain Sensing Headset

Versus is a state-of-the-art headset that connects to your iPhone or iPad via bluetooth. With comfortable dry sensors, the Versus headset records your brain activity in real time.

 

Mobile IOS Apps

Brain sensing technology for a mobile world. Versus brings powerful brain exercises wherever you need it to go.

 

NeuroPerformance Assessment

Versus begins with a NeuroPerformance Assessment (NPA) to assess performance, develop recommendations, and create a benchmark for improvement. Not only can you reliably quantify your mental performance, but you can also track improvement over time.

 

Performance Plans Customized To You

Versus performance plans are unique to each individual user. One might work to increase attention regulation, while another might work on remaining calm under the stress of a test. Versus automatically assigns a performance plan based on your needs, as determined by the NeuroPerformance Assessment.

  • Focus and Attention

  • Calm during Stress
