Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I posted that.  She has Asperger's, and she says (accurately) that it's "different for everyone who has it; there's no one defining quality."

I have known several families with autistic children.  Children who are diagnosed autistic are evaluated on "a spectrum," which attempts to measure the degree of autism.  The most severely autistic cannot speak or function independently, while people with the mildest cases can hold down jobs and lead somewhat normal lives.  But even two people who are at roughly equal points on the spectrum might have very different manifestations of their autism.
