In the essay Reading Signs and Solving Puzzles - On Communication in Autism Pia Hämäläinen, an autistic theorist, discusses the challenges of autistic cognition, and the use of language for interaction and communication.
The core concepts of the discussion include the notions of kind contact (Durig and Hämäläinen), nudge theory and choice architecture (Thaler), Gestalt language (Prizant quoted by Bogdashina), sign-based language (Durig), and perceptual reasoning (Theodore T). Hämäläinen also proposes the use of selected meta-concepts that might facilitate both expressive and receptive communication.
