The toolkit includes a headset with an app, two earpieces and six lollipops. The kit is made from low-cost materials as a way of making it easier to share with a larger audience. Kim also made sure that the pieces in the kit were produced in low-arousal colours as bright colours can sometimes overstimulate people on the spectrum. While autism is a complex condition, this is a remarkable first step in understanding the problems faced with verbal and non-verbal communication on a very human scale.
