The aims of the  study was application of Berard’s Auditory Integration Training (AIT) techniques in children in autism and assessment of AIT course outcomes using MMN, frontal P2a and P3a evoked potentials, and behavioral questionnaires (ABC,CPI). Read the poster...


 2014 Autism Insights. Berard Auditory Integration Training: Behavior Changes Related to Sensory Modulation.  Sally S. Brockett, Nancy K. Lawton-Shirley and Judith Giencke Kimball. 

The purpose of this study was to determine if behaviors specifically related to sensory modulation showed positive changes following 10 days of Berard auditory integration training (AIT). Read more...


1993-2001 Summaries and Critiques of the 28 Rimland/Edelson studies.Dr. Bernard Rimland, who was the founder, in 1967, and director of the Autism Research Institute (ARI), and founder of the Autism Society of America (ASA), in 1965, was interested in Dr. Berard’s intervention. Since there had never been actual clinical research done on the Berard method, Dr. Rimland, and his assistant Dr. Stephen M. Edelson, organized research studies to document the effectiveness of the method. The Rimland/Edelson studies focused on the autism population, but later studies by other researchers included subjects with attention deficit disorder (ADD), central auditory processing disorder (CAPD), and other disabilities. By 1998 there were 28 studies completed and 82% demonstrated positive effects from this intervention.

Tabulated Summaries of 28 Reports, (January, 1993 – August, 2004)
