REI - Rhythmic Entrainment Intervention
Rhythmic Entrainment Intervention™ (REI) is an auditory brain stimulation program that uses musical rhythm to stimulate and re-pattern neurological function. A unique blend of modern advances in brain research and ancient rhythmic techniques, REI facilitates long-term behavioral and cognitive improvement in individuals with neurological disorders.
Specific rhythms and techniques facilitate improvements in many of the symptoms associated with a variety of neuro-developmental disabilities such as autism, ADHD, and learning disabilities.
Origins of Rhythmic Entrainment Intervention
REI was borne out of ethnomusicological research REI creator Jeff Strong began in the early 1980’s.

He then extracted the core mechanisms of these techniques and began researching them in a controlled setting.
After 11 years of extensive clinical and scientific research, including several double-blind, placebo-controlled studies, Mr. Strong and the Strong Institute research staff identified hundreds of rhythmic combinations that correspond to specific behavioral and cognitive symptoms. This research resulted in two important findings:
