Here is an excerpt from the book.
"Context is a major component of social thinking. Social context is extremely critical in understanding even the most basic social concept there is in life. I know of a story told by Peter Gerhardt about a woman with autism who was having an intense conversation with her mother about parenting and growing up to become an adult.
This mother talking to her daughter with autism wanted to prepare her for marriage and children and she insisted on telling her daughter that she could not get pregnant until she got married. The daughter really took her mother very literally and thought that she could not honestly get pregnant until she got married. She took her mother’s request word for word and did not even practice safe sex when having sex with her partner because she did not think that she would get or become pregnant because her mother told her that she was not to become pregnant until she got married. This created a lot of issues and drama within the woman’s family because the girl really trusted her mother and believed in her mother so imagine the disappointment on the woman’s part when she found out she was pregnant and was not married because she now felt like her mother had lied to her."
