: Joe has been really sensitive to sounds this week. I took him to the doctor to have his ears rechecked because he had infection a couple of weeks ago. He keeps holding his hands over his ears and yesterday he plugged his ears because the sound of his brothers footsteps was bothering him. His ears aren't infected.
: I know that his ears had fluid in them before, but he is extremely sensitive to sounds that aren't even loud. Does anyone have any ideas about what could be causing this and how to treat it? Please advise.
: Thank you,

I did the Berard sound therapy with my son in 1999. It took 10 days and was quite expensive but it has definately helped him. He is no longer afraid of the school bell or dogs barking etc. It hasn't cured his autism but it has helped. Sarah
