Using headphones after AIT

We have had several students come to us after completing their Berard AIT training.  It is my understanding that students should never listen to music with the use of headphones.  The following is a quote from the FAQ sheet of a Berard provider:

“According to Berard, if a person wears headphones to listen to music after receiving AIT, his/her hearing may return to where it was prior to receiving AIT. There have also been several clinical case reports of individuals who experienced a sudden loss of gain after wearing headphones. Berard believes that it is acceptable to listen to speech at a low to moderate level using headphones.”

Fast ForWord uses modified speech, not music to train the brain.  Gemm Learning has never had a problem with headphones.
