16 Simple Tips for Sight, Sound & Scent Sensitivity

Sound Tips and Tools

  1. White noise machinesare available online and help drown out other irritating or distracting noises by producing soothing sounds such as ocean waves, rain, washing machines, vacuum cleaners, and dishwashers. Many individuals report that they find a particular sound to be beneficial while other white noise sounds may have no effect or even be irritating.
  2. Allow the use of headphones and music or earplugsto cover up irritating or distracting noises. This should be considered as an accommodation rather than a form of entertainment in the classroom. For example, wearing headphones in a cafeteria, gymnasium or hallway may make these experiences more tolerable. These accommodations can be written into students' Individual Educational Plans (IEP's) or other academic plans when exceptions to school rules need to be made.
  3. Keep the volume of stereos and televisions as low as possibleor wear headphones in the presence of anyone who is hypersensitive to sound.
  4. Choose to participate in activities where people gather such as shopping or dining out during “off hours” instead of peak times to avoid dealing with too many people at once. For example, eat out at a restaurant between 11and 12 or after 1 pm to avoid crowds.
