Online Desk: A hands-on reality tour which gives people a first-hand experience of what it feels like to suffer from autism has been launched in the UK.

The unique simulator asks users to carry out simple tasks while being completely overwhelmed by light and sound.

Participants wear special headphones, glasses and gloves which make it impossible to concentrate as they struggle to filter out the senses around them.

Experts say this helps to create a similar environment to that of sufferers of the condition.

It is hoped the 'Autism Reality Experience', which will tour up and down the country, will be used by schools, retailers and prisons.

This will allow them to get a better perspective of the symptoms that tend to go unnoticed to the untrained eye.

Chelsey Cookson, from Training 2 Care, the agency running the experience, said: 'Lots of people have family members with autism, including myself, and this could help a lot of them.

'We used to be based next to an autism specific care facility, after seeing the success of our previous dementia-focused tour we ran they said it was a shame there wasn't something similar for autism.'

Numerous care agencies will be getting involved to develop their teams' skills by using the simulator which will be rolled out nationwide.

More than one in every 100 people are classed as being on the autism spectrum in the UK and many find public spaces challenging.
