I teach special ed. We use noise canceling headphones. A distraction like a weighted backpack or Velcro under a table can help too.

My daughter doesn't like loud noises. But it's not life interfering. We just don't do thing super loud. No open windows in the car.

My daughter is ASD with sensory issues, and noise is a big problem for her. What I have found helps with her is having an MP3 player when we are out and about. She is finewith noise she can predict and control. It's noises she can not predict or control that create havoc for her.

It is different with every kid, though. Noise cancelling headphones help a lot to control unwanted sounds.

I have tried regular headphones but i.have not tried specifically noise cancelling because i.was under the impression they only cancel out background noises not human voices

They drown out the ambient noise- the hum of sound that surrounds you. It cancels out a LOT of the excess sound.
