People with autism just need time to adapt – and then they’ll knock your socks off

One of the clues that I may be on the autism spectrum was when I was watching a TV drama about a young man who wasn’t getting along with kids at school.

As they were investigating the kid, it became apparent he watched movies and was mimicking the behaviour of people in the shows. 

He was studying these movies to understand how people communicate and try to be normal. They said he was autistic and suddenly the premise of the investigation changed — they weren’t looking for a threat, they were looking for a potential victim.
