Lifehouse – Testimonial

At Lifehouse, we provide residential support for people with developmental disabilities. Autismity helps us tremendously to onboard new employees.

We give them a VR headset and show them how they would perceive having a coffee in a local coffee shop. Then the new staff experience the same situation the way a person with autism might experience. Our staff all work with multiple people we support, so the autism simulator gives a perfect idea of what the supported people might experience in such an outing and why they might start to behave in a certain way. Autismity is a great starting point for discussing different strategies what to do in such situations

The individuality of autism is exceptional. Each one of them is unique in her manifestations. perception of the outside world, or communication skills. Even though I operate with the findings of specialists, the idea of perception of the world is complicated. That’s why I welcomed the opportunity to dip into the perception of my clients via the autism simulator in virtual reality. The information I received in simulations was surprising. even shocking. I can frankly say that this experience has significantly changed the way how I assess dependency on different compensations of social implications connected to autism. My colleagues, medical assessors, have confirmed it as well. I am grateful to all the creators of this program.

Team Autism CIC have been using Autismity, the Autism Simulator for over a year. We are based in Cumbria, UK and have been searching for this type of product for many years.

We use it alongside our “Autism – It’s Part of Them” Course for family, friends and support workers of Autistics to let them experience the daily sensory issues faced by Autistics. Many feel overwhelmed and take the VR Headset off before the end. We say to them “ You can take the headset off, but an Autistic person lives with this all the time.” It is a valuable tool.
