What Does It Feel Like To Have AutismThe Autism Site
Imagine what it’s like for a child with autism. For us, it’s pretty easy to focus and listen to someone who’s speaking to us, but for a child with autism every sound can be heard no matter how hard they try and focus. From the ring of the cash register to the car whizzing by outside to even rain drops pattering on on the street, these are the sounds that compete with what a child with autism is trying to focus on. No matter what it is they hear it all at the same volume.
As they try to cope with the sounds and visuals the world brings them, understand that it’s not easy but they are trying the best they can. Let’s raise awareness for autism!
