Autism is a brain abnormality. Its primary symptoms are communication problems, difficulty with social interactions, and extreme sensitivity to physical contact. Some autistic persons are gifted in some way- they have the ability to perform something extraordinarily well. Not all autistic persons are gifted, and only a small percentage of gifted persons are autistic.
