Autism and Auditory processing disorder

Cowin believe in the importance of making a difference to our everyones day to day life and this is why they strive to make products that can make life easier.

Background noise can cause constant difficulty to those who suffer from auditory processing disorder, such as those on the autism spectrum. Many autistic people, especially children, have difficulty processing everyday information and this can cause issues for them.

Background noise can jeopardise an autistic person's ability to process information. This can have an affect on their behaviour. This information overload can cause behaviour such as withdrawal, challenging outbreaks or a meltdown.

Background Noise

There are numerous ways that this change in behaviour can be helped. Small actions can be made to make big differences. It is important to remember there are differences on the autism spectrum, everyone is unique and therefore may react differently to some changes.

When helping those suffering you need to be aware, be creative and be prepared. Support websites acknowledge numerous ways to help. These include shutting doors and windows to reduce external sounds and preparing the person before approaching a crowded place.
