Finding her comfort in a sensory-filled environment.

Amor has super power hearing. While we can easily block off background sounds like the horns blowing, doors opening and closing, people coming in and out the bus, people speaking, aircon blowing, etc., Amor cannot filter those sounds. She exhibits this challenge through her irritability.

However, Amor finds amazing ways to help cope with overwhelming background sounds. She always picks to sit near the pole in the bus so she can tap it frequently. The tapping sound and sensation helps her focus on just that and block all the other sounds that bother her.

She’s doing the best she can and coping very well! She’s turning one of her biggest challenges into her super powers!
