Quiet. Sing-song-y. Robotic. Too fast. Too slow. Despite the contradictions among some of these terms, researchers and clinicians have noticed that these various atypical qualities of spoken language are more common than average among individuals on the autism spectrum.

One of the biggest looming threats to humanity’s future is a monster of our own inadvertent creation. This isn’t a summer superhero movie plot.
