Most people don’t realize that autism does have its drawbacks, but we don’t need everything a normal person needs. We have social and learning difficulties but its doesn’t mean we don’t know how to do things. I’m smart, but don’t let the lack of a college education say i’m not smart. I quite college because there was too many cut backs on the supporting services. I need about two hours of tutor for ever one hour of class time. I Learn a little slower than everyone else but it doesn’t mean I’m not as smart. I just learn differently. Manly 100% hands on learning.
