Kirsten I'm not that far into the book, but in the first chapter I felt that she makes it fairly clear that while she believes autistic individuals are very visual thinkers, she doesn't seem to think that all other humans are verbal thinkers -- she talks about visual thinkers in general quite a bit in the first chapter, not just about autistic visual thinkers. I can see what you mean about her attachment to her hypotheses, though; she tends toward stating things as fact and does not temper her opinions very much. I find that directness refreshing at times, but one gets the impression it would be VERY hard to try to change her mind about anything. :)
