Why "High Functioning" Autism Is So Challenging

Why "High Functioning" Autism Is So Challenging | Aspergers | Scoop.it
High functioning autism may sound like a mild disorder, but it can be extremely challenging. Find out why.

Becky B's curator insight, May 1, 2015 8:57 AM

A person with high functioning autism may be more than capable of doing a task -- but unable to follow the spoken instructions provided.  In other words, if a policeman says "stay in your car and give me your license and registration," the person with autism may process only "stay in your car," or only "give me your license."  The same goes for instructions given, say, at a ballroom dance class, at the doctor's office, or by a manager in an office setting.  As you can imagine, this can cause any number of issues, ranging from serious problems with the police to inadvertent mistakes at work.
