Hypersensitivity to noise is common in autism. I can’t even tell you how many students I have had over the years who cover or plug their ears. Noise-blocking headphones can help! The Snug brand is my top choice. I love that they are “kid-size”, and come in different colors. When the headphones fit correctly, children will tolerate wearing them better.
