Testimonials

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our attendees say:

I recommend these workshops. They are the best way to educate yourself about the latest research on Misophonia and are a great resource for ideas of what might work (and help cast aside what doesn’t). My daughter has been struggling with Misophonia for five years, and for the first time since her diagnosis we feel equipped to speak with confidence about the disorder, what she is going through, and what she needs. This has helped both her and her teachers take a more straightforward adaptive approach in the classroom, and has given her the language she needs to let friends and others know what she’s dealing with.

— Beth,
Parent of Teen with Misophonia

My experience live streaming the workshop was phenomenal. I learned a great deal and was particularly hopeful about the funding now available for research and the advances in neuroscience. Having a discussion forum for online participants was an unexpected benefit. I learned about misophonia only about 2 months ago, a condition I think I have had for my lifetime, 70 years. My overriding feeling is gratitude for those who have pioneered all aspects of misophonia and who have believed the real suffering people with misophonia have and do experience.

— Sister Glenna,
Misophonia Sufferer
