This New Video Shows What It’s Like To Be A Young Person With Autism

While I was at my son's hockey game this weekend, I noticed a young boy, probably 10 or 11 years old, with a service dog. Having written about autism service dogs before, I'm fairly confident that's what this dog was. After all, the rink can be loud and bright and provide a lot of overstimulation to a child who's senses are easily overloaded.A new video out of England is hoping to make people see what it's like for people with autism when their senses get overwhelmed. While we may take going to the mall or out to watch a hockey game for granted, someone with autism is often overwhelmed within seconds of being in a public place. A new report even suggests that many with autism are staying home out of fear of public perception when they are out.[ad type="aboveimagead1"]
