What are some causes and recommendations for reducing sometimes continuous, inappropriate sounds or noises? If the child (4 year old boy) is in a one to one teaching situation it is observed less often. In the classroom and with the family he will hum or make silly sounds which disturb others. Can there be a sensory need? If so, what is the solution? Would it help to write a social story?

My boy does this too

My boy does this at times too. I often wonder if it is a sensory need, or due to background noise bothering him. Perhaps you could try some kind of chew or sucking object if he needs the oral stimulation, or ear plugs to dull background noise if that is the cause. I reckon social story wouldn't hurt either.
