No. At the start of the session, there will be a volume test. Put the volume at the lowest comfortable level. This means it should be high enough so you do not have to strain your hearing, but low enough not to be overwhelming. The volume will shift throughout the session and it is normal you might feel challenged to listen. If this is the case, don’t change the volume. Over the course of the protocol, listening can become easier.

You can combine listening with quiet activities such as making drawings, playing cards, making a puzzle, knitting, … As long as the activity does not distract you from the music, or makes you tune out, it should be ok. For this reason, reading is discouraged, as it might take up all of your attention. If in doubt, ask us.
