Any further details? Did your experiences include clientele who did not 'fit in' ...... on account of "not being disabled enough" to benefit from independent living support services?

More often than not, I acknowledge that those important things cannot be understood as an 'either/or' , 'black & white' contexts - that is many subtlties, nuances, ramifcations, etc. make-up even the most basic things in life. The considerations that cognitive biases might sometimes be similar t...

For anybody having opportunities for new social-skill experiences, does anybody view the 'Social Skills & Making Friends Forum' here on WP differently after such experiences?

After re-reading the LINK in (OP) containing specific examples of cognitive biases, idiosyncrasies, etc. , it might be reasoned that quite a few of these cognitive biases might best be described as "NT versions of the Autism Spectrum!"

LINK to discussion-thread in another Autism forum reating cognitive biases to the Autism Spectrum.
