Sensory Sensitivity Videos

This Video Reveals What It Feels Like to Suffer from Overstimulation

— December 9, 2015 — Lifestyle
The UK's National Autistic Society recently released a video that reveals what it is like to suffer from sensory sensitivity. Some people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) are extremely sensitive to sights, smells, sounds, tastes and even clothing. These sensations can cause severe distress in way that is difficult for those without sensory sensitivity to understand.

In order to help people understand what it really feels like to suffer from overstimulation, the UKs National Autistic Society made a video that tries to mimic the experience. The video stimulates the experience of sensory overload through the use of loud and repetitive noises. The idea is to try and convey how everyday sights and sounds can be extremely agitating to those who suffer from sensory sensitivity.

Although people with ASD can have a wide range of symptoms, this video sheds light on a side of Autism that is not always understood by the general public.
