Scientists at the University of Rochester released a revealing study involving children with autism.

The sensory study unveiled that children with autism can identify moving objects twice as fast as others. The research used video clips. Twenty kids with autism and 26 others between the ages of eight and 17-years-old took part.

Experts say these results prove why some autistic children are painfully sensitive to noise and bright lights. Some researchers believe the study will help them to determine a cause
to the developmental disorder.
