Why do so many people with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) find nonverbal communication so difficult? How do these difficulties affect their personality, self-awareness, and sense of place in the world? This groundbreaking book looks at how people with autism are not influenced by subliminal nonverbal communication, and how this results in difficulties with social interaction. As ASD expert Digby Tantam argues, this knowledge can be used to overcome some of these difficulties in people with ASD, and result in positive development.
