The Soundsory Program can be used along with the Beckman Oral Method as it can really complement the assisted movement activity of the Oral Method. Soundsory is a multi-sensory home-based program that simultaneously works on the auditory and vestibular systems of the body. The program has a rhythmic music listening section and a section for body movement exercises.
It is a 40-day program of daily 30 minutes of music listening with exercises. The program is divided into two sessions of 20 days each.
