Talking too loud at times

metalynn

Does anyone have trouble with their child talk too loud at times and any suggestion on what to do about it?

We have checked hearing, and that is fine. There are many, many times where his volume just gets louder and louder and louder. We do remind him about bringing his volume level down, but that only works for 30 seconds. Smile

we do not understand tone and of course loud often tickles lol.I find A voice meter works well and saying inside voice and pointing to the low bit and outside voice when the wave goes up

I have the same problem with my son...he talks so loud! We also tell him to use indoor voice or to whisper he will do it for a second..then the voice gets louder. I can hear him a mile away..lol that and his tone is high he tends to talk with a whinny sounding voice...we are trying to work on that. But yes you are not alone....at least I know where he is at all timesTongue

At the end of last school year Doug started screeching in the hallway going to and fro with his class. His voice is a little sing song but the volume and pitch are usually normal except when he screeches and then it cuts to the center of your eardrum. When you think about tickling, the hallway thing makes sense now. That sound defenitely vibrates your eardrum so if you add in the echo of the hallway it is probably really cool(if that's what your intoWink)

Sam talks very loud too, the specialist wants us to have sam's hearing tested just to be sure.

I am glad to see that I am not the olny one who has a child that talks in a loud voice. My 16 yr old does this all the time...it never occured to me that it might tickle his ears. He has told me he doesn't realize that he is so loud. Thanks guys for the insight.

Mikey always talks really loud and i haven't found a solution other than buying a house with two living areas so that my girls can sleep far away from where he is playing.

Sometimes i can get him to play a whispering game?

occaisionally if i tell him to be quiet it will work but i dont worry if it doesn't.

it's frustrating... have you tried distraction?

Mikey has had his hearing tested before we had the dx of autism as we were curious about his speech but he's perfect and always has been.

My son had his hearing checked as well and he speaks loud all the time. While the hearing lady said that he had the signs of having hearing loss.. his hearing was perfect.
