The story of seven year-old Keane featured in several newspapers. Suffering from autism, Keane is highly sensitive to noise and will do anything to block it out. As a consequence he has been to hospital 22 times to remove a variety of toys, sweets, blue-tac and other things from his ears. The Sound Learning Centre has been providing AIT treatment for Keane and the parents have already noticed an improvement.
