If you’re having trouble understanding your autistic loved one’s behavior, you’re not alone. Autistic and neurotypical people speak two different social languages, and both neurotypes experience the world in vastly different ways.
The things that make perfect sense to your autistic loved one may appear to make no sense to you and vice versa. When these communication challenges clash, frustration, hurt feelings, confusion, and trauma can result on both sides.
If you’re struggling, I’m happy to offer my autistic communication translation services over email.
How It Works:
Autistic communication translation works to explain the unique meaning and intentions behind your autistic loved one’s behavior, so you stop reacting to what you think is happening based on your neurotype and start responding to what is happening according to their neurotype.
You’ll explain what it is your autistic loved one is doing or saying and offer context, so I can translate the most likely meaning and course of action.
It’s a very organic, free-flowing exchange of concepts, ideas, and actions you can implement right away to enjoy more effective communication with the important autistic person in your life!
