Video explores experiences of an autistic girl

The Guardian have produced a virtual reality film which explores how an autistic teenager copes with being at a busy birthday party. The film shows the social and sensory challenges that Layla experiences at the party, and we hear her thoughts throughout. The film was written by an autistic woman and is based on her own experiences when in social situations, and the accompanying article raises awareness of the under-diagnosis of autism amongst girls and women.
