This research paper explores autistic spectrum disorder and neurotypical behaviors. The paper discusses symptoms of autism and different levels of this condition before going on to report this in terms of stress for people with autistic spectrum disorder. After having laid out how stress presents itself in people with ASD, there is research and studies discussing stress in neurotypical people. These two types of stress are compared in terms of the emotional and physical symptoms. Lastly, the article discusses a survey specifically designed for the paper and its results, coming to conclusions about stress for autistic people during the pandemic ultimately being worsened.
