Improve Function, Skill Building and Nervous System Regulation with the Focus System
The Focus System is a multisensory auditory intervention using specially-treated music and movement to support brain integration and skill-building for a wide variety of clients with sensory-motor and neurodevelopmental challenges.
Ideal for both children and adults, the Focus System is easily integrated into your current therapeutic programming to quickly add value for each client, and can be delivered in person or remotely with easy-to-use online tracking and monitoring.
Neurons that fire together, wire together
The Focus System is based on the fact that we can change our brain – we can 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.
How the Focus System Works
Focus System programs provide simultaneous multisensory input to help develop new, and reinforce existing, neural pathways governing organization of the body and brain function.
Specially-treated music is delivered via air and bone conduction headphones, providing auditory input to the brain and sensory input to the body. Movement activities using the integration kit, customizable for all levels, provide additional sensory and motor input for body organization.
Finally, cognitive activities, added later, challenge the brain to process multiple pieces of simultaneous information, which is reflective of demands required of the brain in our day-to-day world.
The Focus System includes the following programs:
10-hour Calming Program
60-hour Sensory & Motor Program
40-hour Concentration & Attention Program
40-hour Reading & Auditory Processing Program
Two 24-hour Optimal Performance Programs
The Focus System develops a foundation that may never have been fully developed or was interrupted due to an event. With appropriate stimulation, the brain’s ability to successfully process and retain information leads to:
Improvement in concentration and memory
Better academic outcomes including improvement in reading comprehension
An increased ability to control impulses and self-regulate behavior
Appropriate social engagement with others
Less stress and anxiety
A happier disposition
