Or do like I do on stage: Look above their eyes (although not at the back wall, as I do, but perhaps at their eyebrows or forehead).

My apologies if I'm speaking out of turn. I realize I have no experience in being autistic and may be performing a visual self-examination of my lower intestinal tract.

Do whatever makes you the least uncomfortable.



But you knew that.
Ah, looking above their eyes I can kinda do. I've had to do it before for job interviews, I usually kinda unfocus my eyes and tilt them in the general direction of the person's face. You'd have thought that would look weird, but apparently not as they all commented on how confident and friendly I seemed. Eyebrows is another one I've heard of as advice; apparently to the person you are talking to it looks the same as when you look into their eyes.

You're not at all, I'm thankful for the advice. =)
