EASe Listening Therapy App Review! #Autism #SPD

If you have been reading my blog, you know that my daughter has PDD-NOS, which is an Autism Spectrum Disorder. With the PDD-NOS, comes, among other things, sensory issues. She is very sensitive to noise and certain clothing etc.

I was recently asked to review an iPhone/iPad therapy app called EASe Listening Therapy app(Personal version, available for $39.99). EASe stands for Electronic Auditory Stimulation Effect. 

The basis behind the app is that it uses bursts of sound to stimulate, challenge, and promote sensory processing in children on the Autism Spectrum and others who have difficulties with sensory processing and organization.

The app is thought to potentially recreate the same effects of other hardware devices that not only can cost $10,000 or more but that only specialized therapists had access to.

Now anyone with an iPhone or iPad can download the EASe Listening Therapy app in seconds.

What benefits could you see by using the EASe Listening Therapy app?

Improvements have been reported by therapists and patients in: Eye Contact, Sound Sensitivity, Sensory Defensiveness, Non-Verbal Communication, Verbal Communication, Articulation, Temperament, Self Management, Organization, Sleep Management, Focus and Attention.

I found the process of downloading the app very easy as it was just like every other app that is downloaded onto an iPhone or iPad.

I found the app itself a bit difficult to understand how to use though. I had to find the instruction manual online to get a good grip about how to use it and be sure I was using it correctly before I let my daughter use it. After understanding how the app worked, it was pretty simple to use. The only thing you must remember is that you must use a high quality set of headphones to get the maximum potential benefits from it.

My daughter found the music to be rather dull as it's just music and no lyrics etc. I did get her to use it about 10 minutes daily for a few weeks. Depending on the person using it, you can see results as quickly as the first use or it can take months. Over the few weeks that my daughter used it, her eye contact and language improved. I also noticed that her sensitivities to sound are not quite as severe as they were but she still has a long way to go.

However, I cannot specifically say it was 100% this apps doing as far as any improvements she has had lately. She is in a special program in school and gets lots of different therapies due to her issues so while I do think the app is great, easy to use and worth a shot at a pretty reasonable cost, I think in my daughters case it was the combination of everything that has been really helping her.

COST: There are 3 different apps available for download.
1. EASe Lite which is a demo available for $.99

2. EASe Personal which includes the full EASe app and a 60-minute module of instrumental music, enough to complete a ten-hour EASe program, with two half-hour sessions a day over a ten-day period for $39.99.

3. EASe Pro which includes the full EASe app and a 60-minute module of instrumental music, and also is capable of importing a wide range of specially prepared albums available at www.easecd.com for $99.99.

If you don't have an iPhone or iPad, no worries. You can still benefit from the program by purchasing the EASe CDs and games instead.
