Autism Awareness Week: The world according to people with Autism

April 05, 2016

Today we’re asking “What does everyday life feel like for people with Autism?” Our busy day to day world can be extremely challenging for people with autism.

People with autism can sometimes find social situations a challenge, simply because they can find it difficult to read and understand other people’s emotions and the importance people place on events and other social practices such as small talk. This means that people with autism can sometimes feel somewhat isolated.

People with autism are typically more sensitive to light, sound, and touch. Some people with autism have difficulty in picking out voices or sounds in a noisy environment. This, coupled with social difficulties, can contribute to day to day life being quite overwhelming for someone with autism.

With more awareness, it is our hope that society can find ways to make our world more comfortable for people with autism.
