Auditory Training 

Auditory training is a treatment that may be helpful for some individuals with autism who are oversensitive or hypersensitive to sound. This therapy involves the individual listening to a variety of different sound frequencies, coordinated to their level of impairment. Auditory training is performed by an audiologist trained in this particular method. If you would like to learn more, please contact the ASA for the Auditory Training package.
