Ethnomethodology and autism

  • Garfinkel (1967) - the fragile nature of perceived social reality.
  • When the ‘natural attitude’ (the belief that everything is how one thinks it is and others perceive things in much the same way) is ‘breached’, people are put under a state of stress and do everything in their power to repair the breach.
  • Everyday interaction involves the work of ‘skilled social actors’ - easily broken down if individuals do not share a common ‘ethno’ (or shared cultural understanding) of the methods of communicating these understandings.
