I came across this book while browsing twitter one night while lying in bed worrying about the future as you do, well I do. I sometimes lie for hours scrolling through #autistic #autism #meltdowns making myself feel better with other peoples frustrations or jubilations.

Not all autistic people are Savant’s. Savant’s are people who have incredible abilities usually falling into a few different categories to name a few:
Musical abilities – being able to playback perfectly a piece of music after hearing it only once.
Artistic abilities – Stephen Wiltshire a prime example his ability to remember skylines and reproduce them in drawings is breathtaking.
