Mashable has an interesting collection of autism simulations to help you get a sense of what autism is like. All 5 of the simulations were created by people with autism based on how each of them experience life. “Sensory hypersensitivity” and “sensory overload” are the simulations below.
What is autism?
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) describes a complex group of brain development disorders characterized by difficulties in social interaction, communication and behavior. Often diagnosed at a young age, approximately one in 68 American children is on the autism spectrum. It’s a figure 10 times higher than 40 years ago, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
