My son's yelling, that is. 

 

My just turned 3 y.o. son often speaks/yells at a very loud volume. Loud enough that it is extremely difficult to be in the same room with him at times; it even bugs my 4 y.o. and has been pointed out to us (politely) in public as being inappropriately loud.  He is not yelling because he's angry, he's playing and happy when he does it.  

 

He can speak more quietly when I ask him to, but he generally goes right back to the loudness in a few seconds. 

 

I'm x-posting this in SN because I think it's rooted in a sensory issue. DS has extremely good hearing and is becoming increasingly bothered by loud sounds. He has sound reducing headphones and when he wears them he talks at a normal volume. But without them, it's like he's at a rock concert, trying to shout over the noise, except there's no other noise. He doesn't always want to wear the headphones and it's becoming a power battle.

 

I mentioned it to his ENT, who confirmed he has very good hearing, but then brushed me off with a 'some kids his age just yell, he'll outgrow it.'

 

This is not normal and I really need to find a solution. It is sooo hard being around someone yelling all the time and even though I KNOW he's not trying to annoy me, it is very hard to stay patient and not get frustrated with him.
