Autism Sensory Overload Simulation

Just a taste of what the Cute Chicks deal with on a daily basis. 
And I'm amazed they don't have more meltdowns than they do.

Wow, like a very wrong acid experience...

I take out my 29 year old autistic nephew and watch where I take him and become very sensitive to the noise and environment. You can see the tension and panic rise if it becomes too chaotic. On a side note, he loves to go to the casino in Lincoln City, Oregon and the busier and frantic it is he loves it... And he is a good slot machine player, knows which machine will pay off, don't ask me, a savant?

Wow, never seen that done. Thanks for linking it to it.

My son is autistic. When he was young, we took him to a monster truck show, thinking he would be love it, like most kids do.

The loud noise terrified him, I can still remember feeling his trembling while I hugged him, his head buried against the crook of my neck. It took at least 10 minutes for him to calm down.

He still hates firework shows, he won't even go outside to watch them from a distance. He cannot communicate what it is that bothers him, the sight of exploding light or the sounds of explosion.

Thanks again ma'am.

Cederq, I think it may have to do with noise patterns, frequencies and expectations. Teen Queen loves amusement parks, can't get noisier or more chaotic than that. Baby Queen can't stand them. Both hate being in a room full of electronics and fluorescent lights. Something about the humming and frequency.

Anonymous,
You're welcome. And Angel hugs to you and your son.

Wirecutter and Jesse, I know, right?
