I've been thinking about a conversation I witnessed in an written online space not long ago. One of the writers struck me as special needs, though I couldn't put my finger on why. A few of the other writers seemed intent on proving that this person was "a liar" despite the supposed lie posing no risk to anyone. There wasn't much I could do to help, but it got me thinking.

How does one recogize special needs in a written format, and what can we do to be more accomodating?

Most of my experience with adapting to special needs comes from witnessing obvious discomfort or tics and trying to slow my speech and lower my volume to be less threatening until I can identify my problem behavior and adjust it. Is there a written equivalent?
