Helping Kids Understand Misophonia | Sound Rage

“Just deal with it! No one likes the sound of his chewing.” That’s often how parents deal with Misophonia, a neurologically based disorder where auditory stimuli is misinterpreted in the central nervous system.

Misophonia is often misunderstood by both parents and children. In this week’s youtube video I help explain what it is and what people can do about it.

When parents misunderstand Misophonia it leaves kids feeling overwhelmed and guilty. They might wonder, why can’t I tolerate certain sounds like everyone else?
