IF YOU ARE NOT AUTISTIC, it’s pretty darned difficult to understand what an autistic person goes through on a daily basis. But the National Autistic Society at least wants us to try.
In this 90-second video, you will experience the overstimulation that an autistic person feels in a busy public environment — in this example, the mall. Good luck making it to the end. Next time you see someone with autism having a meltdown, you will hopefully be able to have a little more patience and empathy as they work through it.
