Description

EASe was studied by researchers at Brenau university in 2012 and found effective in reducing auditory hypersensitivity in children with sensory processing disorder. EASe Listening Therapy The EASe Listening Therapy app for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad was developed for children with autism and other sensory processing disorders (SPD), who often respond to noise with exaggerated reactions and behavioral or learning issues. EASe Listening Therapy uses music to deliver short, intense bursts of sound, creating a sensory palette of sonic experiences that can help a child learn to cope with typical environmental conditions. This long-term listening therapy program exceeds the functionality and performance of hardware devices costing $10,000. Three modes 1) No subscription This mode allows you to test all features of EASe without having to pay for them. However, this mode is limited to one song. Many thousands of children with autism and other SPD disorders have benefitted from using EASe music CDs. Try this mode to explore the potential of the app. 2) Legacy In Legacy mode, you can purchase additional modules (or download and listen to the ones you already own. Modules from our other EASe apps are transferable via iCloud). 3) Guided No need to fiddle with settings. Login and start the session. After each session, just answer two questions to determine how the program continues. Collect achievements and view previous session details. 4) Pro Pro mode allows you to stream or download all modules. No need to purchase them separately. Pro enables you to enter your own values for burst, gap and attack as well as customize the frequency and gain of the bursts. You can modify the left and right ear levels. And Pro allows you to email your own settings to other users of EASe (They do not need a pro subscription to use those settings). More features are coming (like notch filters as well as bass bursts. The pro subscription is geared towards therapists. If you choose to purchase a Legacy, Guided or Pro subscription, payment will be charged to your iTunes account, and your account will be charged for renewal 24-hours prior to the end of the current period. Auto-renewal may be turned off at any time by going to your settings in the iTunes Store after purchase. Current price for Legacy is USD $11.99 per 3 months, for Guided is USD $49.99 per 3 months, for Pro is USD $99.99 per 6 months. Pricing may vary from country to country.

TESTIMONIALS "I have 6 children listening to the music using the Seinheiser headphones. They all have been on either EASe or Therapeutic Listening CD's for over 6 months. Nothing but good to report. I have had no problem with the application-works great. One of my parents stated she liked the quality of the music better? This is the 2nd week (I only see them 1 time a week) and all of them have made some positive changes this week: -Awareness/interaction of their environment -Improvement in vestibular movement and tolerance of movement -Receptive language -Increase in play skills -Good tolerance of music-seem to enjoy listening" - Karen Roessler, OTR/L And about 3 weeks later: "I continue to use the program with 8 of my children; all of them have had great responses and enjoy the selections. In fact a few do not want to Stop listening. Sensory processing including spatial orientation and auditory attention have improved as noted through parent/therapist observation." - Karen Roessler, OTR/L

  • App doesn't work

    Our son's therapist recommended we do a therapeutic listening program with him to work on sensory issues. I decided to use this app because there was a guided program. The app is supposed to ask questions at the end of each session to guide you through the program. It doesn't. It shows a screen with the app logo that I have to force close the app to make it go away. I can't make the email function work because I can't even get the login screen to come up. Now I'm out $50 for a three months subscription, and all I have is an app that doesn't work as advertised and nothing to benefit my child. I'm emailing the company to get a refund.
  • Paying a subscription for modules I spent $40 a piece on?!?

    I have already spent over $200 and it's asking me to use this app instead of the other app that I spent $40 on. This app you can't use your modules hat you already paid for unless you pay for a 9.99 subscription. If I would have known this a couple years ago then I would have chosen the cds or ad card. I don't think this is morally right to switch to this for people that bought it before this. A lot of these parents that buy this go without to get help give their child a better chance. We should at least be grandfathered in.
  • Great app

    Great for kids with sensory needs! Support helped me almost immediately when I had downloaded a module that my son did not like. They then let me download a different module that was more like the demo!
  • Not for parents

    While this may be a very good and powerful tool for a therapist to use, the app description mentions parents may benefit. Unfortunately, the complexity of the app makes us concerned that without a more thorough knowledge of all of the settings, dials, etc., we could end up doing more harm than good. We'd like to see the developer update the app with some more specific guidelines to get started with - I.e session times, etc. similar to the approach used by a typical listening therapy CD.
