Habitual thinking in Autism

31 January 2017

This project is about habitual/repetitive thinking in people with Autism because whilst repetitive behaviours, interests or activities are a core clinical feature of Autism, it seems that people with autism also think repetitively but this has not been researched thoroughly. Similarly, it has been suggested that people with autism think more visually than verbally, but again – this has not been tested. We are trying to plug this gap in the knowledge!
