I'm looking for suggestions on my sons sensitivity to sound associated with his PDD-NOS. Recently his hand flapping has increased significantly and his teacher was wondering if maybe giving him something to keep his hands occupied would help.
Well this morning she brought to my attention that maybe it was because of him eating in the cafeteria this year. He has been complaining about the sound and acts nervous where he is to the point of clenching up.
She mentioned the possibility of using ear plugs for lunch but I'm not certain if he'd wear them. I don't want him anymore uncomfortable than he already is. The two (increased hand flapping and the over stimulation of sound) may not be related.
Has anyone else had this dilemma?
