Sometimes, I think the world thinks that individuals w/ autism are "special" in the need to have that all important preview.

Today, I got a reminder that ALL of us benefit from previews when dealing with a new (uncertain) situation or event. Check out the way one hospital previews surgery for children:

To quote Kathie Snow from Disability is Natural, "We're more alike than different." A good reminder.
