On booking an appointment for treatment we send parents an information sheet with suggestions on how to get your child used to wearing head-phones. We gradually darken the room so that the coloured lights are more effective. The lights are gentle deep colours and do not flash or change colour quickly. They have been developed specifically for children with epilepsy so as to eliminate any possibility of fits occurring as a result of lights flashing.
Most children do not achieve the full benefit until up to six months after treatment. At that time we ask parents to review their child’s progress and fill in an Evaluation Questionnaire. This helps us assess the benefits of AIT PLUS and is useful to ensure continuous improvement of the treatment. Therapists are available after treatment to discuss your child’s progress at any time.
