Here are some tips and strategies for children who may be sensitive to noises, especially fireworks:
- Use headphones, earmuffs, or earplugs to decrease level of sound.
- Wear snug/tight clothing or consider a weighted blanked which can provide calming, deep pressure.
- Chew gum, suck on sports water bottle or sour candy, eat chewy or crunchy foods to help increase concentration and divert attention from sounds in a noisy environment.
