SOUNDSORY® is a multi-sensory program that can be performed at home, thanks to the use of bone and air conduction headphones. Designed to improve cognitive and motor skills, the program is composed of specially conceived music reproduced with neuro-acoustic modifications and a series of about 50 movement-based exercises, which work on body awareness, postural control and coordination. .
SOUNDSORY® - Headphones to improve cognitive skills
The SOUNDSORY® set includes 1 pair of bone and air conduction headphones and a multi-sensory program designed to help people with:
- • Motor, balance and coordination disorders;

SOUNDSORY® exploits the principles of neuroplasticity
At any age, the brain can change itself and create new connections through specific and repeated stimulations. The SOUNDSORY® multi-sensory program is designed to capture the attention of the brain and provide strong multisensory stimulation by improving all cognitive activities. It helps the brain to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections.
SOUNDSORY® establishes a good foundation, from the fundamentals of sensory integration to more complex cognitive functions. The music was composed specifically to emphasize the rhythm (there is, for example, the march) and to recall our physiological body movements and involves an unconscious involvement of the whole body.
Bone and air conduction headphones
The SOUNDSORY® cognitive enhancement headphones use air conduction like classic headphones, but also bone conduction, practiced on the top of the skull, to ensure effective stimulation of the vestibular system and complete sensory stimulation. The music was reproduced using a dynamic filter that creates sound contrasts, which have two main effects:
- • Enhance the high frequencies, which give energy and train the ear for better auditory processing.
- • To develop, as opposed to the Tomatis® Method, a capacity for forecasting and building trust. It is quite easy for the brain to predict sound contrasts, and recognizing them gives confidence and satisfaction, which in turn improves the ability to stay focused and develop organizational skills.
The bone and air conduction system
The SOUNDSORY® cognitive enhancement headphones use two different types of sound processing to stimulate the brain, both air conduction and bone conduction. These two systems emphasize different ways of sensory processing and complement each other.
Sound, which comes from the air canal, reaches the tympanic membrane before reaching the inner ear and being transmitted to the brain. Sound is transmitted directly to the inner ear without passing through the eardrum. Bone transmission is naturally 10 times faster than the aerial canal.
The SOUNDSORY® program
The multi-sensory program to improve cognitive and motor skills lasts 30 minutes a day for 40 days. Each day of the cycle is divided into two parts:
- • A listening phase of the "rhythmic music program" (25 minutes)
- • A phase of “body movement exercises” (5 minutes), which must in turn be done while listening to the music.
Rhythmic Music Program
Body movement exercises
The exercises have been designed with the help of ergotherapists and cause the growth and efficiency of the neural network.
Ranging from wide-ranging motor activities to more refined motor exercises, they can be easily adapted to the needs of each individual and require no other equipment.
Movement, balance and coordination
The SOUNDSORY® movement program focuses on building proprioceptive skills through specific and repetitive movement exercises.
The rhythmic music program is also designed to stimulate the vestibular system which helps the brain to better integrate information related to body position, balance and movement.
SOUNDSORY®: questions and answers
How long can the results be seen?
It depends on the profile of the individual, the goals and what else is done together with SOUNDSORY® to achieve these goals.
The brain needs a certain amount of repeated stimulation to develop new connections, reorganize and stabilize improvement.
Some people see the change within days, others after forty-day completion of the program.
There is no way to know the exact time needed in advance.
Will the results obtained be maintained or will they fade over time?
SOUNDSORY® is designed to educate or re-educate the brain to better process sensory information.
Once the brain is able to process this information correctly, there will be many benefits especially in cognitive and emotional abilities.
The most measurable effects typically occur 2-9 months after program completion.
Is there any particular contraindication?
SOUNDSORY® is safe. Stimulate the brain naturally with music and movement exercises.
However, it does provide brain stimulation through multisensory training.
It is possible that you or your child may experience increased emotionality and sleep disturbances.
You are experiencing what is called "disorganization before reorganization".
It often occurs during periods of rapid growth when the nervous system reorganizes itself. This is a growth phase of development.
We can often see this struggle for independence emerge as children become more integrated, gain greater awareness of their emotions and their ability to communicate.
Is the SOUNDSORY® program complementary to other approaches and treatments?
It is perfectly fine to use SOUNDSORY® with traditional treatments and interventions.
We also strongly recommend supplementing Forbrain® ,
which includes language in the process, which will reinforce the impact of the sessions.
Since SOUNDSORY® is already a listening course, it is not recommended to add other listening programs to daily sessions.
