These earplugs help people with autism in many ways
For many people with autism, noise can be a big problem as sounds get magnified for them and harder to block out.
This can make the world around them very stressful and lead to a feeling of breaking down.
A recent invention is helping some autistic people better deal with the noise factor. These are called Vibes and these earplugs are unique because they do not block out sound entirely, but simply tone it down.
They were invented by a man named Jackson Mann, who burst his eardrum at a concert because the music was too loud. He came up with these earplugs that would still allow people to hear stuff, but at a lower volume.
The device has become popular in the autism community as they are better than foam earplugs.
