Tony Attwoodsaid this:"
Asperger’s syndrome has probably been an important and valuable characteristic of our species throughout evolution".
"Autism is an extremely variable disorder".
"Autism Rocks! (and rolls and spins and flaps and loves and laughs)".
Autism is a complex developmental disability that typically appears duringthe first three years of life and is the result of a neurological disorder thataffects the normal functioning of the brain, impacting development in theareas of social interaction and communication skills..."http://www.autism-society.org/site/PageServer?pagename=about_whatis(3)

communication skills(odd/poor understanding and use of language)
