Autistic Perception

What do you know about 'autistic perception'? 
Autistic Perception - rather than immediately distinguishing objects - such as chairs, tables, humans - from one another on entering a given environment, an experience of the environment as gradually taking form. Like drawing, rather than snapping a photograph. 
Maybe this mode of awareness underlies all perception? Maybe what we perceive is never first a subject or an object, but an ecology? 
This form of perception in everyday life tends towards an awareness of (embodied) 'movement' and 'relations' rather than just fixing (naming) things in time and space. 
Also, I'm drinking some coffee, which may be orientating my thoughts this way. 
Anyway. Something to chew over during the day or days. Be nice to know your thoughts though.
