Johansen Individualised Ausitory Stimulation (JIAS) was developed in Denmark by Dr Kjeld Johansen, director of the Baltic Dyslexia Research Laboratory (See www.dyslexia-lab.dk) from the original work of Christian A Volf.
The program involves listening to an individualised CD for 10 minutes a day. CD’s are reviewed every 8 weeks. The CD’s cover a range of different frequencies that stimulate the brain neural pathways. By stimulating them is such an intense and individual way you are giving the child a second chance to develop good auditory processing skills. The aim is to develop the ears so that the child gets as close as possible to the optimum learning curve so as to allow them to hear individual language sounds better. It also helps to reduce their auditory sensitivity and encourages the ears to work together better.
