~ As soon as we meet a person, we make judgements about them. Just by looking at them, we can tell their age or status. And by the expression on their face or by the tone of their voice, we can immediately tell their emotions. Not everyone has this natural ability. People with Autism/Asperger's find it more difficult to read the signals most of us take for granted. As a result, they find it more difficult to communicate and interact with others.
