Autism vs. Not-Autism

This’ll just be a quick post: Doctor B had an interesting metaphor for me a couple sessions ago concerning the difference between how people with autism and people without see the world. Apparently American Sign Language has evolved or been adapted for interpreting music for the deaf, adding a dimension to represent the music as well as the lyrics. According to the metaphor, ASL with that added element represents how people without autism see daily interactions, where the lyrics alone in ASL represent an autistic’s view of them. I found a good video about that adaptation of ASL for music; maybe someone else will find it of interest.
