Dear Brian,

AIT does not cure glue ear. No level of sound can do that. Any person
considering AIT is advised not to be treated until the glue ear is
cured. It sounds as if the person in question needs a reliable diagnosis
before considering what treatment is indicated.

Let me know if you want more information.
