    Context Sensitivity

    Context Sensitivity

    Researchers say autistics miss context in communication by taking things literally. Non-autistics often communicate using innuendos and assumptions. Whose responsibility is it to make meaning clear - the speaker or the listener?

KimG2413 ,

Very insightful

This podcast is helping me to understand my son who is on the autism spectrum. He is verbal but doesn’t explain his thoughts and feelings. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us.

fjishx ,

Thank you!

Well spoken. Soothing voice. Relatable across generation and gender. We are a scattered minority and we need to amplify more voices like this to drown out the medieval nonsense so many "educated people" still believe. The discrimination is real and people like you give us strength.

kcinbloom ,

Totally me

Thank you! I was considering ADHD at the request of my daughter, I’m certain that’s her deal. Mine is this. I have a great therapist who helps me with this
