Ebulliophobia or Just a Stage?

During ABA therapy Silas was playing with one of the therapists. The other one grabbed some bubbles knowing how much Silas loves them and blew them at him without him noticing. Once a bubble came into his peripherals, he absolutely freaked out. He started almost having a panic attack and ran away from the bubbles screaming. We were all baffled. This is a kid who stands in front of his hurricane bubble maker and lets the bubbles pop all over him.

I have begun to wonder if something has happened that made him scared of bubbles or if this is just a phase. Now anytime there are bubbles blown he backs up and won’t let them touch him. He will not even pop the bubbles with his red plastic bat. I am going to keep blowing bubbles at him and reassuring him that they won’t hurt him. Hopefully this won’t last too long. As you can see below, he loves bubbles.
