Sensory Sensitivity PSA For Autism

This PSA from the National Autistic Society illustrates what it’s like to experience sensory overload — a commonality among people on the spectrum. The video starts out relatively calm, and then the noises build up and pile on top of each other, and the scene itself becomes visually chaotic.

Take a look at this powerful clip to get a glimpse of what it can be like to have sensory sensitivity. (Please note, this film is intended to simulate sensory overload and so features loud, repetitive noises.)
