Johansen Individualised Auditory Stimulation (JIAS)

Johansen IAS is the only auditory stimulation programme which uses music recordings customised to the individual’s own hearing curve to organise and enhance auditory processing skills.

Children and adults with dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD, speech and language difficulties and autistic spectrum disorders may have inefficient auditory processing.

The effectiveness of teaching and therapy can be greatly increased if these skills are improved.

Johansen IAS can contribute to improvements in:

  • Listening
  • Attention
  • Concentration
  • Understanding
  • Learning
  • Reading
  • Spelling
  • Social Skills

Listen to a sample of Johansen IAS

Johansen IAS is a home or school based Sound Therapy programme which involves listening to specially recorded music.

Johansen IAS music is specifically designed to gently change and organise auditory processing by stimulating the nerve pathways into and within the brain – in particular the areas dealing with language.

Johansen IAS can be of benefit to children as young as three years old, adolescents and adults.

Johansen IAS addresses underlying processing which helps noticing, discrimination and organisation of the detail of sound.

Better processing of the detail of sound increases concentration and attention, allowing more efficient learning.

Following Johansen IAS, changes are also often seen in general composure, motivation and associated skills leading to increased confidence and self-esteem.

Research suggests that stimulation is an important requirement for the maturation and changes in auditory processing that support speech, language and literacy development.

The individually customised, focused stimulation of Johansen IAS can contribute to the successful management of Listening and Auditory Processing Difficulties.

Johansen IAS CDs are customised according to information obtained from individual assessment, including audiometry where appropriate.

Johansen IAS is the only form of sound therapy that both individualises the music that the customer listens to and allows the customer to listen at home.

“Every visit I could see the improvement in Murray. More importantly, so could he.”
“He now seemed able to copy my corrections of his mispronunciations accurately and without the frustration previously displayed.”
“After a year and a bit I really feel that A. has gained a great deal from the Johansen Sound Therapy.”

Following Johansen IAS, children, teenagers and adults have reported improvements in their listening. They have also reported a wide range of associated benefits which may be a result of a reduced demand on attention, listening and interpreting what they hear.
