The nature of communication

An autistic woman has produced a video about her language. She describes the video this way. “The first part is in my “native language,” and then the second part provides a translation, or at least an explanation. This is not a look-at-the-autie gawking freakshow as much as it is a statement about what gets considered thought, intelligence, personhood, language, and communication, and what does not.” Click the video twice to start playing.
