its true that autism is not a disease...

 hello to all,

yes autistic people may have hidden talents, which if tapped properly can take mankind to new leaps, as in case of Albert Einstien

but most autistic people have deficient or delayed---

fine motor skills

communication skills

imagination

pretend play

abstract concept understanding

empathy

 

these all are higher mental functions, and deficiency in these areas reflects serious developmental problem and immaturity of certain areas of brain
