SSP Core is recommended to be listened to using circumaural headphones. If using headphones initially creates an unsafe environment, speakers can be used as an intermediate step toward headphone use. SSP Connect and SSP Balance can both be delivered without headphones.
The Mini o Bluetooth Speakers are available in the iLs store. While SSP providers have found other Bluetooth speakers to be beneficial, these have been approved by iLs and Dr. Porges.
The Mini-O speaker package comes complete with two wireless, Bluetooth speakers and a Bluetooth transmitter. When properly connected, the SSP mp3 player/digital device can sit in your pocket while the speakers are placed on either side of the client.
If you are sensitive to SSP music, it is a good practice to wear earbuds or noise-canceling headphones while your client listens to the music through the speakers.
The speakers are intended to be an intermediate delivery option for clients who are adverse or sensitive to headphones. The goal should be to use the speakers until the client is comfortable to graduate to the headphones. The timeline for this will vary with each client and each experience.
