Cooper is VERY sensitive to noises, anything like a vacuum, or motorcycle. Because o his hearing loss, anything that is abrupt or louder than normal, he freaks out.

For the past 2 days, my LO, Teighan, has been changing our television (loves those buttons) & putting it on the "snow/white noise" channel that is so dash loud, Cooper has a fit. He starts screaming, tears are uncontrollable & he keeps crying "loud, scary, lour, scary". I feel so bad. I mean, I know T.T. isn't trying to scare Cooper but he does. Cooper is just so sensitive to this loud noise & almost has another episode/seizure.

Any of you guys have issues w/ the noises for your kids? Is this an area of concern as well?

Justin was very sensitive to people sneezing. Don't ask me why but anytime anyone sneezed when he was about 9 months old-3 years old. He would scream and cry uncontrollably. I guess it was a sensory thing.

If you make a "moooo" sound (cow), he also cries.

Very very sensitive. He has sensory processing disorder, and noises are one of his real triggers. We just keep working with him. He's finally gotten to the point that I can use my sewing machine without him flipping out totally, and as long as his dad is here to hold him while I do it, I can use the mixer now.

Matthew also hates it if you make a mooing sound - but a cow mooing is the coolest thing ever.

Do you know that song "Loving You"...by Minnie Ripperton? That part that she has that high pitch "scream" after the "la, la, la, la....." OMG...Cooper screams bloody murder & melts down. That has got to be the worst song for kids w/ sensory issues for hearing. Fireworks are another trigger. It's hard.

(The web-site below has the song on Amazon.com to listen too, at the bottom it says "samples" & song #5 is the one that Cooper has a fit over)

Man, that sounds frustrating! Eric was terrified of the vacuum for quite a while and it made it tough, but that was nothing compared to what you guys are discussing.

As for Danny, the day he reacts to noises like that, I will probably burst into tears from the joy of it. But of course, we are at the other extreme.

Ava screams at loud noises. She gets terrified. Even DH sneezing freaks her out. Sensory integration disorder was brought up a couple times. I figure therapy will help.

Not that I am happy to hear you guys have the same issues, but it's good to know that I am not the only one who has to pretty much "watch" what we're doing so that it doesn't set Cooper off into a spiral of tears or another seizure. People truly take things for granted, like going to fireworks, can't do it. Or parades, when the fire trucks make their sirens or the police cars do that loud "chirp" w/ their cars, again, totally sets off Cooper. For people going to a parade, they have fun, don't think twice, then you have someone like our children who just melt down & then get sick & have episodes, it's almost not worth it but I feel badly b/c my other boys don't have those problems & shouldn't have to NOT be a part of those experiences. I have headphones for Cooper but he doesn't want "ANYTHING" covering his ears. Bothers him.

Layne has issues with the vaccum STILL, and also the hair dryer. Its definitely a sensory issue. We are borderline with sensory. They are just going to keep watching things

LOL Kannon used to scream at mooing! We also lived on a horse ranch, and he'd be afraid of the noises from them in the middle of the night! (Sometimes, not others-weird.)

We're watching Milo. Sometimes, he's surprisingly UNreactive to noise. His hearing is ok. Other times, he overreacts to something very small. We'll see...

Alex hates loud speaker/pa systems, ect, and dogs barking. But any other kind of loud noise he is ok with. Mostly he is a sensory seeker so it is wierd that he would be sensitive to some noises. Sensory Integration therapy has helped alot, with all of his sensory issues.

Carter is predispositioned be being sensitive/afraid of noises, but I try to work on it with him because I don't want him to have a meltdown every time there is a noise I can not control.

When there is a noise that makes him cry I just give him something he loves, favorite toy type thing and smile and tell him it's okay. I don't remove him immediately or turn off the noise real fast, I want him to adapt and so far it's working pretty well. He's not terribly sure about the vacuum or food processor in the kitchen, but he's getting better and the blowdryer actually makes him smile now.
