I need this if:
My child becomes overwhelmed by loud noises or in any social situations, like parties, summer camps, etc.
This can help if:
My child or student is Neurodiverse (Autistic) or if they have a sensory processing difficulty & they are aged 4 years or over
Why is this useful:
It helps neurotypical (non-Autistic) people to understand how overwhelming loud social situations can be.
Suggestion for how to use this:
Parents, teachers, and teenagers on the spectrum can watch this video which places you inside the mind of a neurodiverse individual. You can use the navigation tool in the corner of the video to gain a 360 degree view of the party from the neurodiverse individual’s perspective.
