Description: This article, in an effort to foster discussion on potential implications for weather communication methods, seeks to provide for meteorologists a thorough overview and analysis of the characteristics of Autism Spectrum Conditions. ASC impacts cognitive development and communication ability, and although prevalence has increased steadily in recent years, little attention has been paid to it by the weather community in discussions to improve overall weather communication. With our analysis, we hope to communicate to meteorologists some of the challenges faced by individuals with ASC, which may affect their receipt of weather communication, and identify areas where potential research at the intersection of meteorology and ASC may occur so that the weather preparedness needs of these populations can be more effectively met. This paper argues ASC should be an important consideration for the weather enterprise as many of its characteristics suggest that those with the condition are at higher risk than others in times of dangerous weather.
