Autism presents unique challenges in communication, often resulting in language deemed "inappropriate" by listeners. The research article "Features Leading to Judgements of Inappropriacy in the Language of Speakers with Autism: A Preliminary Study" by Joanne Volden provides valuable insights into these communication barriers.
