Add REI Programs and CDs to Your Practice

"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

Excellent Instruction, Engaging Experience

More and more health care professionals who work with people with neurological disorders are implementing sound and music into their programs as a way to augment their traditional approaches. Finding musical programs that can have positive effects beyond simply liking the sound can be difficult. This training seminar presents the most recent findings in the fields of music and brain research to help you recognize the impact of different musical approaches on sensory processing and neurological development, making it easier to distinguish one musical approach from another.

Aside from exploring the broader scope of music and sound research as it applies to brain function, this seminar focuses on auditory rhythm and trains you to implement Rhythmic Entrainment Intervention (REI) into your practice. Participants in this seminar will discover the sophistication of REI and how to better meet your clients’ needs.

The REI AP training is led by none other than our Founder and Director, Jeff Strong. Jeff is the creator of REI. He is also the lead researcher and administrator of the therapy. As developer of the entire training program, lead facilitator of the former live training events, and facilitator of the online training, Jeff brings his expertise in the history, science, clinical, and practical therapeutic application of REI directly to the training program.
