At first, hypersensitive hearing may not seem like a big deal. After all, heightened senses don't exactly require a trip to the emergency room.
However, for children who are still trying to make sense of the world around them, sensitive hearing may well be a living nightmare.

And while auditory integration training may sometimes help cure or at least alleviate it, the problem is detecting it in the first place. As common as hypersensitive hearing is, it isn’t always diagnosed correctly.
