Summary/Abstract: The paper challenges the way we think about how we analyse and interpret the behaviours we see in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The focus is on sensory issues, with the main argument being that many of the behaviours we observe may be logical responses to sensory stimulation (e.g., overload, delayed processing, fragmentation) and not attributable to other factors.
