Viewing autistic verbal communication through a neurodiversity lens, autistic communication is a natural divergence or variation in human communication. The ALH argues autistic verbal communication is functional and effective but different to allistic (non-autistic) communication.

Disclaimer: the Autistic language processing hypothesis has not yet been substantiated in research, which would allow the hypothesis to be generalised to Autistic people.

Autistic pragmatic language hypothesis: Rachel Cullen’s theory helps explain the double empathy problem. It explains that perhaps non-autistic people are processing language polytropically (e.g., less detail focussed, able to split attention): seeing the bigger picture, not the detail; parsing (processing) sentences as a whole; where the context exists both in and outside of the words e.g., who is asking? where are we? what’s the tone of their voice? etc.
Autistic people, conversely, are processing language monotropically: seeing the finer detail; parsing (processing) at the word level; where the context, for many Autistic people, is in the words only.
And so, Autistic pragmatics versus The existence of the word neurotypical makes it possible to have conversations about topics like neurotypical privilege. Neurotypical is a word that allows us to talk about members of the... pragmatic languages:
Theories about Autistic experience – Aucademy
- Autistic: context is in the words; processing each word in a sentence; literal; need for specificity of words and sentences:
- “How are you doing?” becomes a huge sentence to parse each word without specificity, as we might not process who is asking; where we are; etc. Autistic brains tend to try and process all the words and their possible meanings: “When do you mean? Doing what? Why are you asking me? etc.”
- Be specific: “Did your dentist appointment go OK this morning?”, and be prepared that questions may be asked to clarify what is being asked e.g., “What do you mean by OK?”.
- Neurotypical/non-autistic: context is in what is not said; processing at the sentence level as a chunk; figurative and subjective:
- “How are you doing?” – asked by your boss, in the office, you’re both wearing suits: “I’m great, got that report done you asked for”.
- “How are you doing?” – asked by your friend, at home, you’re both in pyjamas: “Awful, my boss wanted loads of work from me”.
What if pragmatic and other language differences found in autistic people are linguistic markers for a different but functional pragmatic system?
