Many people with autism choose to wear noise-cancelling headphones. I love wearing mine and they help for a number of reasons. First and foremost, it drowns out a lot of the extra noises that actually cause me pain. When the extra noise like food cooking, other conversations, and chairs moving is removed, I can focus much better. My headphones allow me to focus on the person who is talking to me at a comfortable volume. While they may not look the best, my days are always better when I can have them. There can be a lot of societal and family pressure to keep them off, but I think our society should learn to normalize them.

My name is Mitchell and I am an autistic teen. I want to share my life with the world in hopes that I can bring awareness of what it is like to live with autism. I believe spelling as a form of communication is not well understood and I hope to bring awareness to this lifestyle and change that for autistic people everywhere. I am on the move a lot because it helps me concentrate and apply myself. I don’t think it is a problem, I just think I am different. I want the world to see different as beautiful and not scary like they do now. I know I may not act like everyone else, but that is what makes me awesome! I use a letter board to communicate and I am starting to use a keyboard on my iPad. I hope you enjoy my blog and I would love to hear from you! View all posts by mitchellslifewithautism
