Ds1 has become more so over the year. We walk everywhere and the first time it happened. One of those rip rawring motor cycles blazed past. The type that makes the ground vibrate. Ds1 just ran at me and screamed holding me tight. Times after that when the same thing happened his hands covered his ears and he collapsed to the ground on his knees.
As time goes on he started to have more sensitive days to others. Seemed to happen more in high anxiety times.
Like on one of our orientation days, it being so overwhelming to begin with, mum's brought younger siblings obviously, but one cried for a good 20mins and he spent most of it with his hands on his ears.
Certainly see an O.T and discuss it, they most likely will recommend headphones.
I am glad the trip went well. Andso happy to hear the plane trip was easy.

Regarding the carers payment, i spoke to yet another person at centrelink and got a different story this time. Apparently you should still qualify even if your child is at school. So who knows?

DD is also sensitive to some sounds, and will put her hands over her ears at times. She actually did it during a pop up pirate game during her diagnostic assessment - a good example for them to observe!!
It's definitely more prevalent for her when she is anxious, and can be variable - so, she might sit and watch DH mow the lawn one day with no issue, but need to come inside/cover her ears when he is mowing another day. I think that some days she is more overwhelmed/anxious and has lower coping abilities than others which is why it's so variable. (Makes sense to me as I think everyone has different levels of 'coping' each day that depend on lots of different factors). Perhaps your DS was doing this alot on holiday as he was already having to cope with all the change in routine, airport chaos, new environment, etc and just couldn't cope with the noises as well?
It will be interesting to see what your OT says, but as WM suggested, earphones might be one option if it becomes an issue. I am about to start the hunt for something similar for DD as there's a few times they would have come in handy over the last 6 months or so.
