We're Not All Rainman

This BBC article has come out with the stunning revelation that not all autistic people have Special Powers like Rainman.

I watched Rainman while a student and found it very uncomfortable even though I had not bee diagnosed - it had occured to me quite early on that my "oddness" was a bit like autistic behaviour. Perhaps I recognised some of myself in Hoffman's performance.
