Autism and information
With information I mean all the information that enteres our brain, sounds, smell, sight, touch, everything, and the way it's processed in our brain.
People without autism have a certain filter that filters out information that's important from the less important info. People with autism don't have this filter so all the information around us comes in just as hard and as equally important. This makes the whole world around us extremely chaotic.
In this lecture I explain how this all works, how information comes in, and the way we process it, and what kind of effect it has on us. It covers quite a lot of different topics including non verbal information and body language.
Who is this lecture for?
It's interesting for everybody, for parents, family, but especially for teachers and employers. It can help them understand how to create a school or work environment which is suitable for autistic people and it helps them to understand why there have to be reasonable accommodations.
