Self Initiated Project

Children with autism have great difficulty in communicating and forming relationships with other people, sometimes including their parents. Many people on the autism spectrum have difficulty processing everyday sensory information. Sensory overload occurs when one or more of the body's senses experiences over-stimulation from the environment. This causes their body to shut down and they become stressed and face anxiety.

This book Illustrates a young boys experience with autism as he lets you into his world. This book allows people to understand their struggle as they read the interactive book. The information on the outside is embossed - the subtle technique allows users to find out information with a struggle. It isn't easy to find out what they are trying to tell you. As you open the french folded pages, there are Illustrations and more information. The design ideas are cleverly considered with the aim to help people understand the struggle that children with autism face.
