I have an autistic cousin. I visit him every once and a while. He's practically a genuis, but he can be hard to like or get along with most of the time. He's a nice kid, but being autistic he seems to care about things we ordinarily would never really notice so we think it's silly or stupid, but when I stop and think about what he's saying I realize that most of the time he has a point to the things that he says. We just aren't observant enough to realize it. So, pay close attention to what they say. You may think about it for 30 minutes and realize they came up with something there! It took you a "normal" person to think for half an hour to understand something that they the "wierd" thought of and noticed instantly. I love conversing with him because he veiws the world so differently and unique!
