Looking For Answers to Questions that Bother Her So…

Jacquelyn has a super power. We’ve known this since she was about six weeks old, but we have proof now. Her audiogram shows that her left ear hears at a negative decibel in almost all frequencies, meaning she can hear below a typical person’s silence level. This isn’t news to us, but it’s nice to see it on paper. She knows she hears like Superman and is ready for it to stop. We’re going to try something called AIT… there’s really no science to prove it works and at this point, we don’t really care. It’s worth a shot, and we want to give her some peace. Cross your fingers…

    It’s cool to have a super power, but that’s not the one I would pick. I’m sure that has to be hard for her. I hope whatever you try has good results!

    It does work and there is Science behind the Berard AIT. The Berard AIT will flatten out those low and high peaks…and a whole new child will blossom πŸ™‚ On the therapies and helpful information section of my website are links where you can learn more about Berard AIT and other listening therapies like Theraputic Listening Program/Vital Links. My two older kids did both πŸ™‚ We did the Berard AIT with our daughter Meghan right before Kindergarten because she had severe sound sensitivity…this is one of the major therapies that helped her and is high on the top of the list!! worth every penny!!! If you want to read about her journey to wellness…click on the “About Us” and read about my daughter….she is perfectly fine now and good news…she did the Berard AIT 8 years ago πŸ™‚ and all is still good!!

    Good luck!!! bring playdough and coloring stuff, puzzles…unless you are lucky enough to find a place that does all the SI stuff too πŸ™‚

    Thanks for the info, Diane. I’ll check it out and keep you posted. Jacq is sensory defensive and is very good and sitting still and not getting bored. She also started traditional OT yesterday, so we’re hopeful she will be much improved before starting first grade!

  5. I just signed up. I would love for you to stop by our blog.

  6. Hi Jen,

    Thanks for joining the Carnival! Trying everything to help your child is what mom’s do! πŸ™‚

  7. Well atleast now you know about it
    I have a theory that this is why some kids with SPD have trouble falling asleep and staying asleep – we would too if there was a lot of noise going on

    As difficult as things are it’s nice to have some proof on paper! So many people question if there is really something wrong with my son or if he’s just “a bad kid”. It’s great that you’re trying AIT too – I’ve heard fabulous things:) Good luck!

    Wow! That’s quite a super power and not one I would feel comfortable living with so kudos to your child for coping with it. I pray your strategies work and make things more comfortable…

    Jen – our son has that same superpower too – and coincidentally that’s exactly how we explained it to him. He used to wake up to the sound of a light switch being turned on in an adjacent room when he was a baby: http://www.welcome-to-normal.com/2010/01/lightbulbs-and-light-switches.html

    We haven’t tried AIT but are considering it. I had one of my blog’s followers guest post about her experience with AIT: http://www.welcome-to-normal.com/2010/05/guest-post-on-ait-therapy-one-familys.html

    Looking forward to hearing how it goes for Jacqueline πŸ™‚
