Social skills for autonomous people: making text more readable

Having aspergers and and ADD has made communicating with people very difficult, especially in relationships. I’ve found that writing helps but reading is hard because I get lost in blocks of words and unable to focus. Are there things that can…

When I’m having difficulty reading text I highlight small chunks, like a single line, as I go. It helps me determine what I’m currently reading, I can see what I already read since it’s before the highlighted words, and it doesn’t require multiple programs. I picked up this habit from a friend with the same problems.

I sometimes have to pick out small bits of text from densely packed books. I use plastic highlighter strips (mine are called ezc reader strip) to help me keep my place and focus while I’m working

I stole mine from my husbands classroom, but they are from reallygoodstuff.com

Hope that’s helpful for non-digital writing and communication.
