Decoding a culture

Frances’s questions are usually, but not always, delivered out of the blue or in rapid-fire style. 

There are times when her questions are kind of jolting in a personal way because they provide a glimpse of the ways in which she struggles from day to day. 

In this panel, at five years, she has trouble decoding culture-specific head movements to accept or to decline an invitation. (I had to be certain, of course, that she was not simply confusing the words shaking and nodding — she was not.)

I love to write, make art, etc. about my children, 16 and 12. I'm just doing what I like to do, and, if I happen to be raising awareness of high functioning ASD (my 12-year-old daughter has HF ASD), that's great.
