A very common sign of autism is that the person in question is socially inept, but very skilled at other things. For instance, remembering a 500 pages long book, word by word. Or being to calculate really quick what day a random date was. So if you asked an person like that to say what day it was the 22. January of 1435, he/she would be able to respond correctly in probably less than 5 seconds.


is it really like that???


Aye, it is. One of way of looking at autism is, one part of the brain is *over* developed while another part is underdeveloped

From a Discovery Channel source, to clarify some.



Some people with autism display remarkable abilities. A few demonstrate skills far out of the ordinary. At a young age, when other children are drawing straight lines and scribbling, some children with autism are able to draw detailed, realistic pictures in three-dimensional perspective. Some toddlers who are autistic are so visually skilled that they can put complex jigsaw puzzles together. Many begin to read exceptionally early-sometimes even before they begin to speak. Some who have a keenly developed sense of hearing can play musical instruments they have never been taught, play a song accurately after hearing it once, or name any note they hear. Like the person played by Dustin Hoffman in the movie Rain Man, some people with autism can memorize entire television shows, pages of the phone book, or the scores of every major league baseball game for the past 20 years. However, such skills, known as islets of intelligence or savant skills are rare.

Indeed.. Starting a threat at a forum can be quite mean to people...

To clarify:

Threat, Threaten, to intimidate someone, to give 'em a deadline or "else"

The poster I quoted said 'threat' instead of 'thread'.

Although they sound similar they do not mean the same.

You threaten someone, you don't thread someone.

You make a thread, or make a threat to someone.

Threads are meant of discussion, threats are meant for creating fear in the person(s) targeted.

i wonder if the person who started off the thread realise that autism is a condition not a disease?

I've worked with autistic children before and they're no less than anyone of us. Please show some tact when touching topics as such.

It's insensitive to those who might be autistic or have close family and friends who might be within the category.

Just to lead this topic in a direction at all:

Do any of you know if there's some autistic persons that have invented something grand? Or is well-known for an invention?
