Total Home Program . . .
(When client lives beyond So.Cal. or schedule does not permit otherwise)
When it comes to listening as with many things in education, repetition is the key to success. Therefore, at home listening daily can greatly benefit your progress.

Requires Rental of Unit from Integrated Listening Systems or iLs, who charges $230 per month, minimum 2 months (see Products Tab) includes iPod with the specially processed music, bone/air headphones, Playbook of Sensory-Motor activities, Balance Board, Swinging Ball, Bean Bags and Ball.) Listening sessions are 1 hour each and are pre-programmed for your convenience. Generally the entire listening program is completed within 2-5 months depending on how much listening a client does daily or every other day. You may listen up to 3 hours a day provided that there are at least 3 hours between listening sessions. Best not to skip more than one day in a row if possible.
2. Initial Consultation
When clients live to far away to come in for the listening test/evaluation, Listening Matrix will send you a few questionaires to fill out in lieu of the test. When completed questionaires are returned, there will be a phone or Skype consultation to discuss the results and plan your program. After the initial consultation payment to Listening Matrix is made, you will be given a unique code from our office to call or email iLs so you can rent your listening equipment from them. All fees to Listening Matrix are paid in advance.
$150 for 50 minutes

This takes place when your equipment arrives.The first 10 minutes of this session are instructions in how to use your equipment. There is no charge for set-up instructions. The next 50 minutes involve instruction of additional various activities to do during your program that are not in the playbook that comes with your equipment.
