Repetitive questioning

Posted by: alisrowe, April 4, 2017

It is common for people on the autistic spectrum to repeat questions, words or phrases, or to seem to want to talk about the same thing. In this article, I will discuss why this might be, give examples, and suggest strategies to help.

Personally, I do find myself asking the same thing over and over again. For myself, the primary problem is that I do not process social interactions very well (words, language, speech, gestures, expressions…). I can hear the words, but not understand what is meant. I receive the information but there is a delay before I actually understand what someone means.
