I always worry about people assuming that all autistic people can function like this. Unfortunately, that is not the case. The people being referenced in this article are pretty high functioning. Even Dustin Hoffmans fictional depiction in the movie "Rain Man" was a relatively high functioning case of autism. This is a great thing for these types of people but there are many out there with severe cases that could never function in a job like this.
