How do autistic individuals view the world?

Well isn't that a question!

There are a few videos which try to exemplify this, one is by Chris Barson which tries to explain sensory overload or hypersensitivity

This is also a great example which I believe was created by someone who is autistic.

These videos are great for teaching but the one thing they do not consider is hypo-sensitivity or a sensory under load if you like!

Something to consider isn't it! Makes you think about how we use our sensory teaching, a lot of the time I believe we use the 'more is more' approach, however in autism...less is definitely more!
