The "Safe and Sound Protocol" (SSP) is now available for professional use!   Dr Porges            has chosen to work with Integrated Listening Systems (iLs) to introduce this product to the   therapy market.  iLs is a neurotechnology company that integrates music, movement and language exercises for the purpose of improving brain function.  The SSP, formerly known         as "The Listening Project Protocol" is based on more than 40 years of research          investigating relationships between the autonomic nervous system and social-emotional processes. The SSP protocol is designed to exercise the neural regulation of components           of auditory system involved in listening with specifically processed music.

Research suggests that following completion of the intervention, individuals will have       reduced auditory hypersensitivities, improved auditory processing, improved behavioral         and emotional regulation and will be better able to focus and attend in school, therapy             and everyday life.
