Both DH and DD have auditory hypersensitivity, and I have never heard of this as a coping technique or treatment before. How exactly does this work? I'm trying to figure out what the connection is between pressing on the palate and lower teeth, and the affect it would have on the ears..... I would be interested in hearing more!
I just did a quick search, does the facial nerve sound right to you?
I'm not sure if dd would let me put my finger in her mouth to test this theory out. Did it mention in the book if the boy had auditory hypersensitivity, and if so how severely he was affected by it?
I guess I am trying it. I got DS to let me do it twice today, I haven't gotten bitten yet, but it might take a few days to work up to 5-6x/day and I won't be surprised if he doesn't tolerate it long enough to see an effect! But I will update if I notice any changes in him...
