What kinds of events trigger aggression for someone with autism?


Answer by  Advisor (1032)

Autism is a mysterious illness that offers unique triggers and remedies for each individual; much like a migraine headache. Common triggers for autism patients include stressful situations, large crowds, hunger, excessive heat, and fear. Individuals with autism do not see the world as others do and often perceive a threat where there is none and react with agression or violence.

I believe meeting new people, being in an unfamiliar place. Large crowded area. Not being able to verbalize their feelings.

Sensory overload of some sort (loud noise, bright or buzzing/flickering lights, uncomfortable clothing), changes in routines (particularly without any preparation), scary events, inability to complete a task.
