So I was one of the many that watched the movie Rain Man. Looking back, I really thought that the character played by Dustin Hoffman was Autistic. It turns out, the character was based on a real life person and although similarities exist, he was not Autistic.
I read the following article that I was very interesting around Autistic people, Savants and what people on the spectrum can achieve : http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2015/09/autism-hidden-advantages/406180/
