Suggestions for when having sensory issues and can't leave? This evening my teen daughter had a minor meltdown (some crying) because multiple sounds and smells were overwhelming her in a situation she couldn't leave while babysitting for a relative. These were relatively minor sounds and smells that many people wouldn't even register and it wasn't an unfamiliar place. And the sounds and smells may not have bothered her so much if she already wasn't feeling unwell from a vaccination the day before. Her earbuds helped block out the two ticking clocks but then she could focus more on the smells and couldn't get away from that.
