A sports analogy to neurodivergent and neurotypical communication

Imagine that person A has the football skills of Tom Brady and the basketball skills of Michael Jordan.

There is also an exact clone of this person.

Person A is idle, ready at a moment's notice to deploy (muscle memory, training, familiarity, and sensors) skills to football.

The clone is also idle, ready at a moment's notice to deploy (muscle memory, training, familiarity, and sensors) skills to basketball.

A stranger walks up and needs basketball skills.

it will take the football mind a transition period to communicate equally to the basketball mind and vice-versa if the topic were football

despite the skills being clones, society is set up to read something into this transition period and does so systemically.


  • spend time focusing on mindreading to determine what sport to keep top of mind for the next stranger

  • spend time focussing on the transition period to understand of it

  • focus on how the system can move to a model that translates input data prior to interpreting it
