Autistic kids process sound, vision differently than others

Scientists have found solid evidence that kids with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) process sensory information such as sound, touch and vision differently than typically developing children.

The study by researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University supports decades of clinical and anecdotal observations that individuals with ASD have difficulty coping with multiple sources of sensory information.

The Einstein finding offers new insights into autism and could lead to objective measures for evaluating the effectiveness of autism therapies.
