Safe Sound Protocol

The Safe and Sound Protocol, or SSP, is a non-invasive application of Polyvagal Theory, based on decades of research and developed by Dr. Stephen Porges, Unyte's Chief Scientific Advisor.

 

The SSP's effectiveness has been proven in a wide range of studies, most notably in two clinical trials involving children with Autism Spectrum Disorder.  Trial participants demonstrated statistically significant improvements in:

 

  • Emotional control
  • Behavioral organization
  • Hearing sensitivity and listening

 

Most years, we follow the local school districts for our weather closures.  Since schools aren't open, please follow our Facebook page or this page to keep you up to date.  Assume you DO have an OT session as scheduled unless we post otherwise or call you directly to switch to telehealth or cancel your appointment.
