Perceiving new situations often poses challenges for people within the autism spectrum.
Now, following a 30-person study, a research team in Tel Aviv has evaluated a new method of learning. On the first day, participants were asked to study a visual task in depth.
Instead of simply repeating the task, on the following days examinees were exposed to the visual stimulus for a few seconds at a time.
The process improved performance by 20-25%. This matches the gains made by repetition, but in significantly less time, and reduces overstimulation.
Where the latter is concerned, the effects can be alleviated by this chair.
