Is there a language, a tool for comunication preferred by people with Asperger Syndrome and Autistic Spectrum Disorder? If this preferred method of communication may help to overcome barriers caused by face-to-face-interaction, why is it not widely used?

This research will be mainly focused on online text-based communication in the Autistic and Asperger communities. Can a "common language" be found between neurotypical and ASD communities? And if so, what will be the best tool to achieve a successful communication?

IMPORTANT: Please note that this only a proposal. The research is in continuous development, and this document might look out of date or out of sync with the contents of the blog and website. Please stick with me, as I will update aims and direction of this project as it develops. This website will contain always the most updated details about my work. For further information, feel free to contact me directly (
