Can I get custom made earplugs for my autistic son?

My son is autistic and suffers with sensitive hearing. I am looking for custom made earplugs for bedtime. He is in care and cannot cope with the noises.

Answer: 

Thank you for your question. It is possible to have custom made earplugs for your son but the supplier will depend on his age. If your son is under the age of sixteen you should contact your local NHS paediatric audiology department. If he is sixteen or over, most providers of hearing services should be able to supply custom made earplugs.?
