As a researcher and autism survivor, I can state that children with autism can hear sounds above the average person hearing range. Although high pitch sounds cannot be heard normally, to an autistic child these sounds can cause intense inner ear pain.
Knocking The Pain Out
In an effort to stop this inner ear pain, the autistic child will cover or slap their ears or in severe cases bang their head against a wall to knock out the pain.
This inner ear pain was virtually unknown to my parents.
Being isolated in my own world where this pain existed, I saw the world from the inside out. I was not able to cross over to a proper reality.
This self isolation was caused by the inability for my brain to ground to its physical body.
My brain’s inability to ground to its physical body didn’t allow me to complete the pathway or circuit into a normal reality. In the world I lived in, I spoke properly, maintained mental focus, emotional balance and occasionally felt this inner ear pain.
This lack of grounding prevented me from traveling back and forth between a normal reality and the reality that I functioned in.
Also without this grounding I was unable to create any mental, physical or emotional environmental filters that would protect me from these high pitch sounds. In a normal reality, people can filter out these sounds, protecting them from this intense inner ear pain. I could not.
I have since discovered that there are two causes why my brain could not ground to its physical body:
1) The chemical reaction caused by vaccination preservative’s that seem to distort the brain’s ability to form proper brain wave frequencies needed for this grounding to occur.
2) The electro magnetic fields of energy in the home that interferes with the brain’s circuitry. These fields of energy are generated by the use of fluorescent lighting, microwave ovens, TV’s, computers, electronic equipment, flying in airplanes, and driving in a car.
The Take Away
When your child starts slapping their ears or banging their head, they are not being defiant, they are in terrible pain.
