My son's showing sensitivity to loud noises

My son is showing sensitivity to loud noises and big crowds. I've been thinking of getting him a pair of custom earplugs that he can use whenever needed but I'm not really sure. Is that something you can recommend?

Thanks in advance.

Re: My son's showing sensitivity to loud noises

Has he ever been evaluated for sensory integration disorder?

Re: My son's showing sensitivity to loud noises

How old is your son?

I didn't realize my son had this until his late 20's. It's more than shyness or being reserved, he is very uncomfortable in places like malls and restaurants. I wish I would have known about all of this when he was little, i have the same thing but to a much lesser degree.

yes I would definitely try the earplugs! or maybe just music on a phone etc (depending on his age, of course).

Re: My son's showing sensitivity to loud noises

For my oldest granddaughter, adhd, what bothers her the most is the sound of
other people eating or chewing. She usually goes off to eat by herself in her bedroom.

What really ramps up my heartbeat is a two-stroke motorcycle engine, or dogs
barking, or the bass thumping of a carbstereo. But my youngest granddaughter,
autism, and I both tend to wear ear-plugs when we eat out at a restaurant,
especially the very noisy ones like Texas Roadhouse.

I believe he hasn't been evaluated for that. I let him wear earmuffs but he doesn't seem comfortable with it. I also let him use foam earplugs but he said they hurt and that's why I'm considering getting custom soft earplugs. We're pretty tight with money nowadays because my mom just passed away that's why I can't get him evaluated.

He's 8 now turning 9 on December. Thanks for the response. I'm actually planning to get him earplugs from a brand that claims to use a comfortable soft material to make their earplugs and that made me consider ordering from them.

Thanks for the response. Now I know that it is something that is common. I was a little terrified at first because my son just cried out of the blue without even saying me why and that's not a good feeling.
