Autism: Seeking predictability in an uncertain world

Thu 27 April 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm BST

Hybrid Hybrid Event
£4.00 – £7.00
Hybrid Hybrid Event

This talk will characterise the way autistic adults often think as slow and deliberative, rather than rapid and intuitive, typical of non-autistic adults. Deliberative thinking can have many advantages in predictable environments (such as when logically reasoning), but may also lead to difficulties in uncertain environments (such as social situations). The processing of predictable and uncertain information is also important for regulating sensory and motor behaviours. The talk will explore the neuropsychological differences that are shown by autistic people in these areas, before addressing how research could be used to boost independence and wellbeing within the autistic community.
