Hosts Patricia Wu, Jessica Reyes, and guest therapist Ryan Heapy discuss on the new German study, which shows autistic adults share with strangers as they do with friends, challenging empathy stereotypes in autism.

Research finds autistic adults have a different approach to empathy, equally generous to all, challenging old views.

Equality Over Proximity

Autistic participants showed no preference in sharing, treating strangers and friends alike, underscoring a commitment to fairness.
