Autism and speech

Regular readers already know of my admiration of Amanda Baggs, autism spokesperson extraordinaire. In today's blog post she puts into (typed) words a description of what it is like for her to communicate using spoken language. Pretty short and to the point. Worth a moment of your time.

...the standard overload stuff reminded me of something: This is what it felt like to use speech (including having the “speech-generating modules” online even when not directly speaking) for a few hours, when I was at my best.
