This thought came up yesterday on another thread, but the more I ponder it, the more it fits. Being Autistic is just like being hearing impaired from birth. Out efforts to cognitively learn how to read non-verbal cues and the unspoken rules is like a deaf person trying to learn how to read lips. Our efforts to learn how to put up an NT persona to present to the world is like a deaf person trying to learn how speak.
