Licensed therapists can offer Rhythmic Entrainment Intervention CDs and programs through our Authorized REI Provider network. We currently have nearly two thousand providers located around the world. Authorized REI Providers come from a variety of backgrounds including:
You can train to become an Authorized REI Provider two ways:
The REI Authorized Provider training is a 7-hour course designed for professionals unfamiliar with REI who want the most comprehensive introduction to REI. This program offers a solid foundation of the history and research of musical rhythm.
The online Authorized Provider Training program is a self-paced, streaming-video program that allows you to work at your own pace in the convenience of your home or office.
We offer only select live training events each year, usually 1 or 2. These are unique programs facilitated by REI creator and Strong Institute Director, Jeff Strong.
Due to the popularity of our online training courses, we currently have no live training events scheduled. We recommend that you take the self-paced trainings or contact us at 800-659-6644 if you'd like to help organize one.
Note: The REI Provider trainings cover details of offering the REI CDs and programs and do not include material on performing REI rhythms in practice. We are working on a training program for building performance skills and protocols. The first course in the series will be available in the first quarter of 2012.

"I have been trained in many 'listening' and music programs - and, to date, I have had the BEST therapeutic effect with REI. It is, by far, easier to implement than any other program, and from my perspective it has the most benefit and positive therapeutic changes!" Theresa Garrison, OTR Occupational Therapist
“The work that the REI Institute has done over the last 10 years is remarkable! My patients have experienced some incredible gains using the program. I am excited to have the opportunity to offer this program to the clients in my clinic.” Jennifer Griffith, OTR Occupational Therapist Milestones Therapeutic Associates, Inc
"Let me say how much I enjoyed the training program! I loved all of the information and the format you used to present it. I have been through other 'sound' training programs and this was by far the best. I am excited to begin using REI." Deb Wellmes, SLP Speech-Language Pathologist
“I became a provider because there is research behind it. And many other programs that claim to be similar don’t have research behind them... I’ve seen improvements in all my clients." Barbara Taylor, M.S., CCC-SLP Speech-Language Pathologist
“My experience REI has been overwhelmingly positive. It’s not a silver bullet...but there have been positive changes with every patient who’s used it.” Lisa S. Matthews, OTR Occupational Therapist
