Student Designs
2017

How do people with autism perceive the world? The Empathy Bridge for Autism is a toolkit that allows people to experience the visual, auditory and speech differences that come with autism—advocating greater understanding and empathy for children with autism. Made of sustainable materials, the toolkit includes a headset, two ear pieces and six lollipops. While autism is a complex condition, Empathy Bridge for Autism provides a first step in understanding verbal and nonverbal communication.
