Reducing Auditory Hyper-reactivity in Children with Autism: a pilot study

Research Study

We recently received IRB approval to begin our study that looks at audiology and MRI testing pre/post-treatment for decreased sound tolerance/auditory sensory over-responsiveness in autism.

IRB Approved Email/Social Media Script:
Does your child have autism? Do they have difficulty tolerating certain sounds? This study titled: "Reducing Auditory Hyper-reactivity in Children with Autism: a pilot study" investigates neural, physiological, and behavioral markers of treatment response to the EARS treatment program (Exposure Therapy for Auditory Reactivity with Self-regulation). Eligible volunteers ages 6 to 11 who are diagnosed with autism will be asked to participate in a free 12-week treatment for auditory hyper-reactivity in which audiology testing and MRIs will be conducted. Gift cards, small prizes, and a 3-D image of their brain will be provided.
