    I am so happy I found this page. I have a five year old boy with PDD. He has three characteristic of autism. Please if you can suggest something that will be helpful to him. Also, he took the Berard Method last year and they said to me that for the rest of his life he cann’t use headphones. I will appreciate your help and God bless you for the help and the tools that you are bringing to us.

      I would be happy to direct you to some resources to help your son. You can contact my office and speak with Susan Snee at 1.888.228.1798. I will ask her to contact you as well.

      Berard practitioners are trained to recommend no headphones after the Berard AIT method. This is unfortunately has been overstated. I worked with clients administering that method for a number of years in the early-mid 90s. Berards concern was “excessive” headphone use, periods of listening with headphones longer than 30 minutes, as the middle ear muscles can become fatigued decreasing the ability to block loud sounds which can be damaging to the inner ear. If headphone listening is done at moderate volume and limited to no longer than 30 minutes for children at a time, there is no problem. Your son can safely proceed with The Listening Program. Thank you for your message and blessings. All my best to you, your son, and family. Alex
