A buddy system is usually based on support provided either by peer buddies, or buddies from senior years say 6th formers in a secondary school, or some combination support from other pupils.

ABA = Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA)

Noise management sound like your DS may have Hyperacusis and some i know talk about musicians earplugs as a method of help.
