Misophonia is a strong emotional reaction to certain sounds.
Trigger noises are sounds related to chewing food, swallowing, tapping, breathing, lip smacking, nose sniffing, and other man made noises.
4. How certain is your child that she/he can carry on with their day to day activities, relax, and enjoy life, without using any distraction or avoidance strategies to help them cope with the trigger noises?
(examples of distraction or avoidance strategies are: using background noise or making sounds themselves to cover up the sound they find upsetting, mimicry, getting away from the sound, refusing to go to or be in certain places, making excuses not to go, covering ears, use headphones or ear protection, telling people to stop the noise, etc.)
