ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5


Autism is a health condition that affects how people interact with the world around them. People with autism might have trouble understanding other people's feelings, speaking, or communicating with others. They can also have sensory sensitivities like having to wear noise-cancelling headphones to block out loud noises, or having trouble sleeping because of bright lights or loud noises. Some people with autism might need help with everyday activities like getting dressed, eating their meals, or playing with other children.
