Sound therapy for hyperacusis study

Are you an audiologist working with people with hyperacusis? Your help is needed!

Hyperacusis is a hearing disorder involving increased sensitivity to everyday sounds that would not trouble most people.

Current interventions include education, signposting to talking therapies and sound therapy. However, there’s a lack of clarity for sound therapy, such as what type of device to use, and how long to use it for.

Your help is needed!

Nighat Kalsoom at the University of Lincoln is conducting research to explore a consensus on the use of sound therapy in adults with hyperacusis. She is looking for adult based audiologists who work with patients who have been diagnosed with hyperacusis to take part.

What is involved?

You will be asked to complete an online questionnaire on sound therapy use using the JISC online survey/questionnaire tool.

For more details about what the study involves please read the attached information sheet.

If you’d like to complete the questionnaire, you can find it at
