You never know, someone here might have a be a high-functioning autistic. Like me, for instance. You never know.....
And yes, I do have a niece who is autistic. I love her to death, I wish I could see her more often. Bless her heart, she tries so hard I can tell. She just can't grasp what's proper in interactions, though.
>I'm trying to rememer the name and author of that novel with an autistic boy as the protaganist, very good book. I'll have to find it on my shelves.
>I have a very good friend who is mildly autistic.
Maybe you are talking about "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time"?
