Autism as Context Blindness329
Despite years of study and advanced technologies, we still do not fully understand how the "typical" brain works, much less how an autistic brain works. And while we have become increasingly familiar with the term autistic thinking, people with autism are still misunderstood, leading to frustration, depression and missed opportunities to reach one's potential. According to Peter Vermeulen, treatment of autism is still too focused on behaviour and minimally focused on observation or determining the way of thinking that leads to the behaviour. In this groundbreaking book, inspired by the ideas of Uta Frith, the internationally known psychologist and a pioneer in theory of mind as it relates to autism, Vermeulen explains in everyday terms how the autistic brain functions with a particular emphasis on the apparent lack of sensitivity to and awareness of the context in which things happen. Full of examples, often humorous, the book goes on to examine "context" as it relates to observation, social interactions, communication and knowledge. The book concludes with a major section on how to reduce context blindness in these various areas, vital for successful functioning. Due to the far-reaching consequences of context blindness, this book is a must for those living and working with somebody with autism.

"Peter Vermeulen brings a truly refreshing perspective to autism and thus sheds new light on our still blurry vision of this perennially fascinating condition. His wonderfully embracing concept of 'context blindness' provides a powerful explanation of the varied features of autism spectrum disorders." -- Uta Firth, world expert on autism, developmental psychologist and professor "Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience and Dept. of Psychology, University College, London"
