The world is a noisy place, and for some of us, it is overwhelming to the point of causing physical pain or can trigger anger, rage and outbursts that cannot be controlled.  Hyperacusis is the actual feeling of physical pain and discomfort from loud noise and sound.  Misophonia is an even bigger reaction to noises which might include a sudden outburst of rage and anger in response to hearing people clicking pens, sniffling, chewing or a clock ticking.  No matter what degree of sensitivity you might have to noise, our ears and auditory sensation can be addressed so that sound is within your own comfort level.  Those with Autism Specturm Disorder (ASD), Auditory Processing Disorder (APD), Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), and Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) are among the most common populations that suffer from extreme reactions to noise.  We can help! We have many tools that can alleviate the unwanted emotions and reactions to sound.  The auditory system is one of the many sensory systems that can react, but there are others.  See more in our page about Sensory Connections.
