Found 9th Oct
Okay, so fireworks night and New Year celebrations can be quite troubling for some, especially if they are autistic or have sensitiviy problems with loud noises. I thought I'd pop a thread together with a few options that could help families out and help those that need them feel a bit more comfortable in these situations.

There's loads out there, so any recommendations are obviously appreciated, I'm sure there are lots of people that this could help

More suited to adults really - These are £2.99 at Screwfix

You can get caps to go on them to change the design, there's a fair few of those at £5.95 - Ear Defenders NOT INCLUDED

Thanks,people without children with asd do we just leave that child at home then? Yes didnt have these thinga many yrs ago but also had more mental asylums and homes for children with special needs who were not understood

Good post ignore the haters. I need to get some for my eight year old who I'm taking to a footie match in two weeks. Probably pop to screwfix . Foam ones always pop out. Without ear defenders I would not be able to take him.

If this wasn't posted by an editor I would have said it is an ebay seller promoting his own store!

Not seeing anything other than full price.

The people knocking these aren't talking about autistic children so get a life....not every child is autistic hey

We had a pair of these last year. Snapped in half on the second go! I would recommend reading reviews of them before buying

The Kidz ones are cheaper on Amazon with prime (10.95)

We have These's argos.co.uk/pro…363 we have had them for about 2 years still going strong, my son uses them for the air shows, fireworks and fair grounds with loud music

We have these :

ebay.co.uk/itm…649


Obviously a lot more expensive and primarily designed for shooting, but you can hear normal speech while blocking out high decibels............you can also switch them off altogether and have them act as a very effective ear defender (better dB reduction than any featured on the deal link). Our youngest son loves them.

My personal view is that regular ear defenders are wholly inadvisable for children - you remove their ability to hear the various dangers that could be around them; Hence our choice for the electronic option.

OP - ignore the stupid comments, heat from me. I have an autistic child and have ordered a pair.

Great for Xmas day when the in-laws pop over thanks Op!

Hate buying anything on eBay cos it's full of fakes and that. Would buy these from a proper retailer though for sure.

my son with asd would be lost without his ear defenders. He is now 14 and he has had several pairs. The kidz ones are fab albeit a bit more pricey, it's worth paying the extra. The cheap ones hav to been too bad in my experience and are a good purchase to have extras for keeping in the car/school bag etc. Thumbs up on the post op 🏻 🏻

Just use earplugs.

Ok, heres a opinion like I said yesterday.

As a adult with autism sensory withdrawl isn't always the best idea, instead of dealing with the problem you are literally muting it.

Sure headphones relax me, but too much, its like throwing a sheet over a birdcage it makes me want to sleep and friends with autism say the same, you can barely keep yourself awake, and because of hearing no sounds it can be more scary if say someone touches your shoulder as you didn't expect it so go on a panic and have heavy beating heart, parents wouldn't realise this with kids as they are there with the kid but once they get older and on their own they would freak out over it.

Also you lose sense of surroundings so its common to for example walk onto a busy road with headphones as you have lost that indication of danger by the sound and your brain is sleepy due to the pure silence.

Its why adults with autism often don't like assumptions like people with it want silence, we do want order to chaos and we do need something like another person to do this for us but it creates the idea that we are just like we seem around our carer/parent when in private we are totally different.

My personal compromise is when I get music headphones to have ones that only go in one ear that way I have the music to relax me whilst still can concentrate.

The final thing is many people with autism like noise its just they cannot handle the pitch of the noise, so goes back to muffling it rather than muting it.

Would these fit a dog or cat?

That's cause there aren't any

"ooh they look good at that price!"......*click...click...scroll...* £15.......???

This is about the usual price - not a deal.

But... my daughter doesn't have asd but reacts badly to loud nosies, even hates hand dryers. With these she's been able to enjoy shows, a football game, visit to the Royal Albert Hall, and fireworks etc. Sometimes she's even taken them off but it's been worth while having them because it's got her there in the first place.
