Life with autism: Share your story
Sounds of Autism (no music)
- ssesha, CNN iReport producer
Oh yes -- I also have Asperger's Syndrome.
I am especially sensitive to sound. I usually go to the grocery store in the evening when it is quieter. When I know there will be lots of noise or many people talking at once, I wear my headphones. But if it weren't for the way my brain plays with sound, would I be able to immerse myself in languages the way I do?
Just like everyone, people on the spectrum have things we're good at and other things that we're... not so good at! It's all about how we think about and use our abilities. Take your special interest and nourish it. Be "aumazing"!
