“The Safe & Sound Protocol (SSP) is an innovative intervention designed to improve an individual’s social communication behaviors by reducing hearing sensitivities (i.e., hyperacusis) and improving the ability to process human speech. The intervention is based on the Polyvagal Theory (Porges, 1995, 1997, 1998, 2001, 2003, 2007) and is designed to enhance the processing of human speech by dampening the masking and interference of background sounds”. Ultimately these components support processing, language comprehension and effective communication for adults and children with ADHD.
Susy Dornberg, OTL/L, is an Occupational Therapist and is Sensory Integration trained and SIPT certified and is the founder of the South Bay Brain Center. Susy looked for a model that would help her clients with ADD/ADHD be able to focus, be more social, decrease aggressiveness, and not get into trouble at school. It was clear to Susy that kids who were desperately asking for help needed a more holistic intervention. Susy decided to incorporate Neurofeedback into her practice and has never looked back. Medication is an option for some children and adults with ADHD, who suffer from this chemical imbalance of the brain. More and more people are medicated to help them focus at school and in their daily lives. Neurofeedback can help with ADD/ADHD challenges and with the symptoms of depression, anxiety, trauma, substance abuse, eating disorders, autism, TBI, and attention problem. Many athletes and business executives use Neurofeedback technologies to learn how to utilize the full potential of their minds.
