Understanding the Social Deficits In Autism Via Perception Of Sound And Frequency

Description

My correlational study presents the hypothesis that there is a relationship between social ability, tolerance of loud sounds, and tolerance of high frequencies in both autistic and non-autistic individuals. Sensitivity to loud sound and frequency can characterize the atypical auditory sensitivity associated with autism (Lucker, 2013). However, in order to direct future research, it is crucial to conduct studies that determine if there is a correlation between perception of loudness, perception of frequency, and sociability in a non-autistic population. Additionally I elaborate on how understanding the way autistic individuals perceive a variety of stimuli allows us to provide them with better accommodations.
