Wished you could wear the shoes of your loved one with ASD to experience what he experiences? Here’s a little insight: Imagine going for a walk and being bombarded by lights and sounds so intense that you can’t help but scream and meltdown. Whoa! Yes, that’s what a stroll down the street can be like for someone with autism who is very sensitive to sensory things.
