Sound-Based Interventions

Downers Grove, IL

Milestones is pleased to have a team of therapists on staff who have been trained in a variety of sound-based interventions, which use sophisticated technologies in combination with the therapeutic benefits of music. When supervised by a skilled clinician, therapeutic listening intervention can be a powerful tool to assist a child in meeting their therapy goals.

Our Approach

Therapeutic Listening® programs include modulated, fine tuning and gear shifter music. Therapists use these various programming options as well as SAMONAS Sound Therapy® to design a therapeutic listening program specific to the needs of the child and designed to address established goals.

Milestones also makes available a music Lending Library to families who receive sound-based intervention and therapeutic listening services at our therapy center.

Integrated Listening Systems (iLs) Therapy

At Milestones, we have a number of highly skilled therapists who are trained in the Integrated Listening Systems (iLs) program. In iLs therapy, a child is guided through enjoyable brain activities that simultaneously exercise the visual, auditory and vestibular systems with the goal of training the brain to process sensory information and improve emotional regulation. A child’s ability to focus, think and engage successfully in social situations increases with improved brain function. Based on your child’s needs, Milestones therapists will customize an Integrated Listening Systems therapy program that can be utilized both in the clinic and in your home.
