Default Re: Autism

Theres this kid in my grade that has it, hes a genius, He won like, every geography bee. and he never really talks. and he gets excited about fantasy stuff, like Harry Potter and some of those disney movies. Its sad because im not in any of his classes anymore. He would always interrupt and ask wierd questions to the teacher. and everytime the teach would assign something he would ask really loudly, IS THIS FOR A GRADE!?? The teach would then tell him to be quiet and he would say SIRE YES SIRE!! Oh man it was funny. lots of other funny stories.

But they say autistic kids are more into realistic things like the problems of the world instead of hot wheels or barbies. They lack social skills too.
