Its very rough for anyone to have to accommodate to a different culture. Both the neurotypical culture and the asperger culture need to understand each other rather then just one culture understanding the other. A better understanding comes from knowledge on both sides.

I learned a great deal about this issue in a book by Herb Lovett entitled Learning to Listen; also in a book by Monty Roberts (the horse whisperer) entitled Horse Sense for People...the idea in the latter being that Monty came to understand that horses indeed had a language (equus), that we needed to understand and use. So often, in the world of human services, we do expect people to, in a sense, learn our language, but rarely vice-a-versa! I agree that the cultural issue is somewhat amorphous...but it never hurts to listen.
