Master Guide to Improving Autistic Accessibility in Music

“Something’s wrong!” my mom cried. “My headphones malfunctioned! My video sounds blurry!” I put on her new, fancy headphones and watched the video. It was the singer in the plaza. It sounded crystal clear. I had been there. “What do you mean it’s blurry?” I asked. “There’s a lot of noise! It didn’t sound like that in real life!” “Um, that’s exactly what it sounded like in real life,” I retorted, frustrated with her imaginary tech issue. My mom looked hurt by my dismissal of her problem. This w...
