I think this is great! My brother has severe Asperger's, and it's good to see that some of the unique abilities autistic people have are being recognised. People tend to overlook the fact that people with learning disabilities can be very intelligent.

This is a fantastic article.. I know so many people with different forms of Autism, and they get mis-judged so often.. My younger brothers best friend has Asperger's and he's easily one of the most inteligent kid's I know.. It's great that more opportunities are being made for jobs, as well!
