My 8 year old aspie son has started making newborn puppy like noises. He started out only making them when he was concentrating on a video game or something like that. Now he is making them almost ALL THE TIME! He is getting louder with the noises too. When we ask him to stop making the noises, he says, "I can't!" I know I shouldn't be annoyed with these noises, but I am. Also, I worry about what other people will think of my son, especially his peers. Praise God, he is homeschooled so he doesn't have to deal with potential bullies at school! Anyone have a suggestion for how I can help him stop making these noises????

sounds like a stimming thing... I wouldn't do anything with it to be honest, but I second the notion "praise god he is homeschooled"!!! Kids can be cruel. Maybe you can see what happens if he can only make the noises in a certain area, like his room?? but if that upsets him too much... This is a hard one.. Hugs! I'll keep thinking

hmm... well, being a child only 5 years ago myself, i feel like i'm certain i could give some suggestions, but frankly, i can't recallmyself repeating things... i'm sure my mom does. i'll ask her and get back to you.

as kim said, this is a hard one.

I took Kim's suggestion to have him make the sounds only in his room. He is resistant to the idea but is responding. I have to keep reminding him, "Those sounds belong in your room." I told him, "I know those sounds make you feel better, but you need to learn when and where it is ok to make those sounds." His brother is thankful not to have to listen to him anymore! Thank you both for your help! I'm off to do school with my kids! Smile

Yeah, it's definitely a vocal, maybe even an auditory stim. Maybe something he heard on his video game or somewhere else that he's imitating... My son does things like that all the time. He "vrooms" his cars, in other words, he makes car sounds all the time when he plays with his cars... which is constantly. We've just managed to teach him that it's OK to do it, but there are certain places that he has to be quiet or even VERY quiet when he does it. It's a slowish learning process, but with time, your son will get it eventually too.

Stimming is a good thing, it is very calming to autistics and aspies, it kind of keeps them "centered." As much as I get annoyed with it and many of my son's other stims or eccentricities (like jumping up and down on his bed or trampoline or spinning in circles until I feel like I'm going to throw up), I have to just go with it, because I know it's what keeps him sane.

I've found I have quite a few of them myself... one is that I like to chew on things...straws, pens, etc. Another is that I have to always be moving. When I'm sitting, my legs are always bouncing... etc. You get the idea. I've learned over time when these things are acceptable and when they are not... with your help, your son will too. Smile

Keep your head up. Smile and maybe buy yourself a pair of earplugs for those especially loud days. Wink
