DS is 6, has no diagnosis, but has been receiving OT and Speech therapy since he was about 3, started a sensory integration/social skills group over the summer. He's made improvements in so many ways, meltdowns are fewer, sensory-seeking behavior has dimished (like, he used to lean on walls/ fences/etc. to walk, now he can actually walk in a straight line!). But one real on-going trigger for him is the sound of his sister eating. He says no one else's sounds bother him. He really melts down almost every time she eats in his presence, screams, kicks, puts his hands over his ears so tight I think he's going to hurt himself.
Any ideas for how I can help him? One of his OTs suggested headphones. They aren't all that close to each other when eating... I let them watch TV at dinner time (I know, I know...) and one is on the couch the other across the room.
