The Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP)

The Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) stands at the forefront of auditory interventions, utilizing the groundbreaking Polyvagal Theory by Dr. Stephen Porges to foster physiological regulation, enhance social engagement and increase skill retention.

* Appropriate for Auditory Processing Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorder, emotional regulation, improved social interactions, and more.


the Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP)

- A Cutting-Edge, Evidence-Based, Somatic and Polyvagal Modality. 

Peer-reviewed research underscores the transformative potential of the Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP), highlighting its ability to enhance therapeutic outcomes significantly. By leveraging sound frequencies to activate the parasympathetic nervous system, SSP fosters improved vagal regulation of the heart. This advanced method of parasympathetic activation empowers individuals to attain better control over their physiological state, setting the foundation for enhanced well-being and emotional balance.

The influence of our physiological state extends deep into our daily lives, affecting how we navigate tasks and challenges. Through the guidance of certified SSP specialists, individuals experience a notable improvement in skill development, memory retention, and social engagement. This innovative approach reinforces neural pathways critical for behavioral regulation and social interaction, offering each person a tailored plan to maximize the benefits of their unique listening pathway.

Implementing the SSP can dramatically enrich how individuals connect with their surroundings. Among the notable benefits observed are an enhanced ability to maintain eye contact during conversations, increased facial expressivity, a deeper understanding of speech, heightened emotional regulation, more reciprocal social interactions, and a broader range of emotional expression.

Significant advancements have been documented using the SCAN-3 auditory processing assessment tool, particularly in the Filtered Words and Competing Words subtests. The SCAN-3 is instrumental in evaluating auditory processing disorders, specifically the ability to distinguish speech from background noise, showcasing the profound impact of SSP on auditory processing capabilities.

Integrating the Safe and Sound Protocol as a therapeutic supplement opens vast opportunities for meaningful change, exchange, self-confidence, and making a lasting positive impact on one's quality of life. This evidence-based approach marks a significant leap forward in therapeutic interventions, offering hope and improved functionality from more than a cognitive approach by integrating physiological, somatosensory 'exercise' for the vagus nerve, muscles of the inner-ear, and Central Nervous System (CNS).
