College Sorority Holds Autism Awareness Events

A sorority at Texas Christian University recently held an event to raise autism awareness.   Students in Kappa Lambda Delta hosted a "five senses event," to educate students about the sensations that someone on the autism spectrum might experience and what it might feel like to be autistic.  For example, students would have to put on loud headphones and try to hold a conversation.  I can't speak for everyone on the spectrum, but I think this is an excellent way to inform people about the how sensory processing disorder can affect individuals on the autism spectrum.
