for Parents and Professionals
line separation





The Georgiana Institute has been a resource for information on Auditory Integration Training since the publication of Sound of a Miracle by Annabel Stehli (Doubleday '91).


Annabel Stehli welcomes questions and comments about Auditory Integration Training, Sound Sense, autism, and related disorders from individuals, parents, family members and professionals. She can be contacted by email, or by text or phone at (203) 994-8215.


What is AIT?
Auditory Integration Training is a sound and music therapy consisting of randomly modulated and filtered music played through headphones for half an hour, twice a day, for ten days. Its effect is to eliminate or reduce uncomfortable sound sensitivity.

The FDA permits the following statement: Auditory Integration Training remediates impairments in auditory discrimination (sound sensitivity and auditory distortion) associated with autism, learning disabilities, and related disorders - ADD, ADHD, CAPD (Central Auditory Processing Disorder), SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder), Dyslexia).

What are the benefits?
Improvements in socialization skills, focus, concentration, expressive language, sleeping, and academic performance.

Caveat: It is best to have any Berard-based Auditory Training administered by a professional Auditory Training Practitioner, for half an hour twice a day for ten days. A home program is only for those who are unable to do this because it is too inconvenient and/or expensive.


To find a qualified, professional AIT practitioner, see the

Website Directory of AIT Practitioners:
United States and International listings.



BREAKTHROUGH: Sound Sense, an brand new A.I.T. program, is now available. This A.I.T. system for practitioners comes on an i-Pad with headphones, is very user friendly and getting great results. The Sound sense system can be ordered directly from The Sensory Clinic in the U.K. or from Annabel Stehli for $4500 USD including online training and an exam leading to certification by the Georgiana Institute. (Training and certification are optional and are not required).
