Neuro-mixed relationships

AS vs. NT Culture: Two Worlds, One Dysfunctional Family, by Kirsten Lindsmith. Kirsten looks at neurologically mixed relationships (between an autistic and allistic [non-autistic] person)- as two conflicting cultures trying to interact, and comments that ‘All too often, the burden to communicate “correctly” is placed entirely on autistic people’.

She also states that ‘many, if not most of the disabling aspects of autism are not “autism” so much as the environment, expectations, and norms of the dominant culture.’
