According to Peter Vermeulen, treatment of autism is still focused on behavior and minimally focused on observation or determining the way of thinking that leads to the behavior. In this groundbreaking book, inspired by the ideas of Uta Frith, the internationally know psychologist and a pioneer in the theory of the 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.
