Brain Processing Problems
Strategies for Success offers two 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.
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-hour 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
Anxiety and trauma-related challenges
Stressors that impact social engagement
