DD has dyskinetic CP and has always had a startle reflex. When she was a baby she used to get upset when she startled but through her primary school years she was able to see the funny side and although she still startled at sudden loud noise she would just laugh it off. Now she's 12 and at secondary school. Her startle is huge because she is no longer a little girl and she has long arms now! The bells for lessons go off 15 times every day and she hates them! I've added a popup warning on her communication computer so it gives her a warning just before they go off and this has helped a bit but when moving between classes or in assembly she doesn't have her device attached. Can you think of any ways to help desensitise her from the bells or is there anything we can do to dampen her startle reflex...?
