BEING AUTI || Hypersensitive Hearing

loud noises

Not everyone likes the clanging of utensils, or crowded areas; it’s a common emotion! But to people with autism their senses are a lot more heightened that it can be extremely irritable. Timothy Kleinman is diagnosed with autism; he loves video games, unfortunately arcades are very limited even though he wanted to stay. The noise would cause emotional distress, which to autistic people is called a meltdown. While such symptoms can be overcomed, it takes a long time.

Luckily, Rich Goranski(Be More Chill) is a very supportive boyfriend, and knows exactly how to calm him; letting Timmy feel the texture of the rough, died scars(For the fire) while Rich continously tries to stay calm.

I’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback how accurate the representation has been! I mean, I’m still learning but it’s nice to know I’m doing something right, especially since a lot of these symptoms are very over looked, and I would like people to be more mindful about autism.
