Many people with autism can be overloaded by too much input. Overload may be triggered by lights, colours, moving objects, loud noises, everyday sounds, touch, textures.
Here in the UK, the NAS have recently launched a video called Too Much Information to simulate what it feels like to be overloaded in public places. View it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lr4_dOorquQ
In school there are many triggers of sensory overload which can make it extremely difficult for students with autism to focus on tasks.
It can be difficult for teachers to know what are the triggers of their student’s overload, therefore I am creating some simple products to help. Available here https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Autism-Auditory-Preferences-Sensory-Visual-Support-2575352
