Why Don't Individuals With Autism Respond Well To Traditional Or Psychoanalytic 'Talking Therapies'?

Question: Why don't individuals with autism respond well to traditional or psychoanalytic "talking therapies"?

Answer: Children with autism perceive and interpret people and the world differently than children who do not have autism. They often have difficulty with insight and understanding the perceptions and emotions of others and they may have trouble communicating with people. These factors make it difficult for children with autism to benefit from traditional talking or insight oriented therapy.
