Many people on the spectrum have severe processing issues during communication.
I started making cards for people to hand out when they feel overwhelmed by other people's questions or requests and this seems to help some people with HFA make their needs known even when their brains are in overload.
Feel free to make copies of this card for yourself, or for those of you who are creative- you can make your own card and hand it out when you are "at a loss for words" (don't know what to sayor how to say what you want to say)!
