If autistic people may have issues with theory of mind with non autistics, do you think that maybe non-autistics have the same issue towards autistics?

This question raises another question for me- when it comes to struggling with theory of mind, does this not affect autistic people as much when they're dealing with other autistic people? I didn't realize the neurotype of the subject made a difference

I imagine a struggle with theory of mind would be equally troublesome in ND exclusive relations, as well as ND & NT relations.

I think that NT's are probably better at understanding autistic folk than autistic folk are at understanding NT's. But NT's are the best at understanding other NT's, in general.
