My 6 year old was tested for this at my request. I had to wait until he was 5. They said he didn't have it because he looked the testing people in the face. Sound along with other things bothers him. Latley when I talk he plugs his ears. We have this hole puncher for papers. It black and long and does 3 holes at once. He covers his ears with that to. You barely can hear it.

I understand everyones frustration. Like my son you are soo excited to have a test done. THen they don't see what you are saying. I wanted during this appointment to call them out to the waiting room. My son does have sensory issues we did find that out and he went to OT for that and it was helpful. My two year old has the same thing. But there are other things that have always made me think he was Asperger. He worries about stuff all the time, uses big words for things. Drives me nuts on stuff like directions and remembers and talk about stuff that other kids could care less about.

These are also symptoms of ADHD. I don't think alot of docs have been trained in the differences yet and that's why I've been a big supporter of sending kids that were diagnosed years ago to a neuropsych now to see if there's more to the old diagnosis. We did just that and found out we were right all along, there was way more that just ADHD.

My spouse's son ( 18 ) is VERY sensitive to cigarette smoke. We both smoke. However, I did rig our place up to be able to smoke in the basement throughout winter. ( I have no problem accomadating for that ) But, every now and then the air pressure outside will change and our exhaust fan turns into an intake fan and we experience a very loud and aggressive temper tantrum that may last for hours. Once we realise the smoke issue, I am able to clear the house out in 5 minutes. But the tantrum lasts. I am not ready to quit smoking yet ! LOL

As a fellow smoker I can sympathize and tell you what I did. I go outside and have since our son was born. As he grew up his outbursts about me smoking showed up so I just removed it as much as I could.
Before you say "but it's xx degrees outside" here it's currently +5 and was -5 when I woke up today and -15 yesterday and stays around those temps for 7months.
No soap box, no preaching, your house your rules it's just been my policy not to smoke inside my house where others who don't are trapped.

Many kids with AS have metabolic impairments in the liver, so they become hypersensitive to any airborne pollutants etc. The same thing happens in people with lupus.

My son's psychiatrist said that it's very typical for kids with PPD-NOS to hate flushing toilets, public hand dryers and vacuum cleaners. My 5 year old PPD kid hates all of these things.

Some loud noise gets me but what really gets me is bright light like those lights attached to ceiling fans. Can't stand 'em!
My biggest "annoyance" are those commercials where you can hear people eating. Just the sound of 'em masticating their food or smacking their lips drives me completely bats to the point I mute the tv if I can.
