I have aspergers (late diagnosed) and I am so much sound sensitive that I avoid birthday parties to avoid balloon cracking sound. Normally, at the childhood I was much much more sound sensitive. I avoided rooms where any wall clock that may sudden bell. If someone startled me, I got crippled, and after getting into the controle I attacked the startler from self-protection instinct. But there was an week... on a festival a local politician arranged a decoration of war-plane that cracked a very loud firecracker each 30 seconds or a minute interval. I screamed like mad, I shouted, I jumped, I gone out of control I was not getting minimum time to adjust myself. Even Our parents were not enough empathetic; they just talked to a local club, which did not took any action. Anyone else at the locality had not any complaints. How insensible the society is; and how easy to do such level of child abuse.

I have autism and sensory overload should be considered by corporations when creating an establishment.

I work with children with LD and know how much of a struggle simple tasks can be for parents with children with LD, the least we can do is help by making day to day chores easier to handle.

In theory all disabled people have the legal right to reasonable (ie not bankrupting nor dangerous) accommodations, but in reality managers don't care until they're sued. Let's try to do better! Why not do the right thing without having to be forced? I would add to the request for less noise & softer lights, compassion for those with sensitivities. For a few examples, staff and washrooms should be unscented since synthetic fragrance causes so many health issues, also latex allergies should be accommodated by avoiding latex balloons and gloves, and smokers should be kept away from entrances so as to not create a barrier for those who can't breathe smoke. EVERYONE should be able to safely buy groceries, whoever they are and whatever special needs they may have.

I know how hard it can be to do the things others take for granted. People need to do what they can to make the world a bit kinder for everyone.
