Does anyone here, or any of your kids, have an extreme sensitivity to sounds? My dd gets extremely bothered by small sounds, sounds that don't bother most people - the sound of me yawning or breathing, the sound of other people chewing, people tapping their fingers, or bouncing their legs, the sound of me typing on the laptop and so on and so on. I have read about some sound sensitivity problems. It might be misophonia, or hyperacusis. I'm not sure. Misophonis typically only involves small, quiet sounds, and sometimes she has trouble with loud sounds as well. Not as much, and she has learned to tolerate the loud sounds somewhat as she has gotten older but the other little sounds have not gotten better. In fact, they are getting worse.
So, I need help. Where do I go to get her help? I have mentioned it to her dr and we were thinking SPD, which she may still have that, but I'm not sure if this is part of that or something else entirely.We are trying to find a psych dr to get her anxiety and possible SPD evaluated, but I'm wondering if we need to go somewhere else, perhaps and auditory specialist to get this looked at. Would that be an ENT or what kind of dr? And any tips on how to deal with this at home? Lately she can hardly stand to be in the same room with me bc she says the noises are too much for her to handle. Please help!
