just wondering if this is possible? My DD with suspected Aspergers, Dyspraxia & Sensory Processing has said that she could hear the needle whilst having a blood test! Thanks x

Oh yes, ASD kids can have incredibly sensitive hearing.

Agreed, with mine it's taste and smell.

I do too hmm although always put it down to an overactive imagination in my case.

Thanks chaps, that's really interesting to hear! She said she heard it make a pop sound as the needle entered her skin. Her hearing seems to be getting more and more sensitive recently and it's causing her difficulties at school and at home. Not sure what I can do to support her x

You can do Auditory Integration Training or one of the other auditory therapies.

This cures hypersensitive hearing.

I would think she probably could. DS2 often gets upset over noises he hears that we don't even notice (until he points them out).

my son was told he had extra ordinary hearing during a hearing test, he can hear bats, I have some in my loft, he has to have the telly up loud to drown out outside noise or else he cant hear the telly properly.
