This Textbook Edition of 'Autism as Context Blindness' is another simple but groundbreaking title!

Application of Vermeulen's insights into the mind of autism will help individuals with ASD to become ready for the contexts in which they live. While we have become increasingly familiar with the term autistic thinking, people with autism are still misunderstood.

In this 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 and highlights the impact of not understanding context.

Full of often humorous examples, the book examines context as it relates to observation, social interactions, communication, and knowledge. The book concludes with a section on how to reduce context blindness -- a skill vital for successful functioning.
