On New Year’s Eve 2015, when her family headed to the Perth Foreshore to watch the evening fireworks, Charlotte opted to stay home with Murphy, the family dog. Like Murphy, the sound of fireworks was frightening and unpleasant for Charlotte. As she lives with the auditory condition Hyperacusis, loud noises are greatly amplified and the sounds produced by fireworks were too excruciating for her to endure.
The Wishing Tree provided Charlotte with equipment that allowed her to watch the live Fireworks with her family – read Charlotte’s full story here
