Repetitive Noises Driving Me Mad!
Posted 19 October 2009 - 04:02 PM
I know it sounds really silly but I have had it constantly since Friday afternoon now and I am actually finding it a bit stressful! He used to chew everything, especially actually eating holes in clothes - (only just stopped) so I am guessing its some oral type tactile thing - with the chewing he had a chew tube or chewing gum which helped but they have no effect on this!
The other thing he is doing all the time is clicking the joints in his fingers and if you ask him to stop, he starts again and cannot stop til he has clicked them all! This too is becomming a little annoying!
I am finding it easier to cope with all the major issues and aggression than these two niggling annoyances - is that mad?
Would appreciate any advice!

BUT i just wondered maybe his clicking his fingers could be an anxiety thing? have you tried using anti stress balls with him at all? or the squishy gel ones, like these?

He is so loud it drives me crazy. I wouldn't mind so much I don't think if it was the usual noises NT kids make when they are playing but with James it's just screeching and screaming ARGHHHHH I can feel myself getting stressed just typing this. I am forever up and down the stairs asking him to play more quietly.
My CP asked me how long he had been doing it and how long I had been trying to stop him and I said years. She then said that maybe I should put my efforts into something else instead lol but I just can't it drives me up the wall.
He also makes a "mm mm mm" sound when sitting still at the cinema for instance which grates on my nerves and smacks his lips which annoys me too.
It does drive you up the wall doesn't it?
When I actually get him to stop making one noise it is usually replaced by another. I think he has little control over it personally and mostly isn't even aware that he is doing it.
