90% of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder or Sensory Processing Disorder saw great improvement in sensory processing and motor coordination by using the Focus System home program, in addition to increased emotional regulation.*
What Is The Focus System?
Improving brain and body organization. The Focus System is the core product for improving brain function through the implementation of Unyte-iLs’ methodology: brain and body integration through multisensory input.
The Focus System is a clinical-level intervention designed for home use, consisting of therapeutically-treated music combined with fun movement activities, and, when ready, cognitive challenges to further activate brain networks. The flexibility of 60-minute or 30-minute versions of the programs, which target specific goals, make implementation easy in clinics, schools and home.
With a suggested frequency of three – five times per week (four hours of listening), home-based programs can supplement clinic visits or be done on their own.
How does it work?
Focus System programs provide simultaneous multisensory input to help develop new and reinforce existing pathways governing organization of the body and brain function.
Therapeutic music is delivered via air and bone conduction headphones, providing auditory input to the brain and sensory input to the body. Movement activities, 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.
Logistically speaking, you will rent or purchase the FOCUS system from MyUnyte and the therapists at Brain Connex Therapy will provide virtual clinical support.
The Science Behind the Focus System
The Focus System is based on the fact 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.
