What is Filtered Sound Training (FST)?

  • FST is the Bérard Auditory Integration Training (AIT) method, delivered from a computer or tablet.
  • This is a method that uses music to re-train listening skills by filtering the sound in a specialised way.
  • FST is offered in a personalised package of 20 half-hour sessions.
  • These sessions are done twice a day consecutively for 10 days.
  • Changes that occur in listening and learning are seen over the period of 4 months following FST.
  • FST/AIT is a non-medical approach that often has far-reaching benefits.
