Johansen Individualized Auditory Stimulation (JIAS, formerly HSAS) assists with developing the auditory pathway so individuals with auditory processing difficulties can process auditory information more efficiently. The user listens to individualized CDs for 15-20 minutes, six days a week. This music is designed to stimulate the nerve pathways into and within the brain, specifically the areas dealing with language.
Dr. Kjeld Johansen, Director of the Baltic Dyslexia Research Lab in Denmark and Founder of JIAS, has researched non-verbal auditory stimulation and its affects on language-based learning for over 30 years. To read more about Dr. Johansen, please visit www.johansenias.com.
JIAS has a strong track record and has been in some European countries for 20 or more years. At A Chance To Grow, we use JIAS on a variety of diagnoses such as auditory processing deficits, developmental delays, autism and speech/language delays.
