I have read that white noise can be good to help calm someone in times of sensory overload.
Has anyone tried this/ found it works?
I've used this to cancel out noise when I feel I can't deal with it (things like the sound of people watching TV in another room for instance) I use a website/ app called Noisli which has a range of other sounds too which are quite good, and some of them I find more calming than the white noise, things like the sound of rain or the wind in the trees.
I am diagnosed with hyperacusis (hear noise as pain , hyper sensitive hearing) and Wear a white noise generator for several hours s day. I find at times when I am feeling stressed I deliberately listen to the sound and find it calms me .
My noise is a good free website with lots of customisable sounds, the one called speech blocker is the closest approximation to my generator
Apps for anxiety such as "calm" are also useful
