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.
