Autism Empathy Tools

Autism Empathy Tools enable you to experience the sensitive visual, auditory, and vocal senses that autistic individuals live with.

The tool has three components: a VR cardboard box and specially designed app for smartphones that reproduce autistic vision, earphones that emulate deafness and oversensitive hearing and a disposable tongue-tying candy, which disturbs pronunciation. Although Autism Empathy Tools can never fully emulate the autistic world, they serve as an accessible bridge towards an understanding between autistic and non-autistic people.
