Finally, a neurotypical experience that mimics autism: ‘Zoom fatigue’
This article discusses how taxing social interaction is over video platforms because of challenges in interpreting unspoken information, which may be obscured or absent due to teleconferencing platform issues. Critically, it discusses the amount of concentration required and how exhausting it is, something those of us on the spectrum are all too familiar with, as this is how hard communication is for us all the time.
If you think it’s tough to concentrate for an hour or two, try doing it all day while you’re at work, or in class, or trying to be productive, and you’ll get a taste of what it’s like to be autistic in a neurotypical world.
