I would recommend reading Temple Grandin's books and watching the movie about her life, if you want to know more about Autism; and she is also an interesting individual in my opinion. I myself have high functioning Autism too, so I can relate to her quite a bit; despite having different interests. For example, she's more scientifically oriented than I am. But, I like that she overcame all the obstacles that a lot of people with disabilities face; like people making fun of her, and saying that she can't live a normal life as a couple of examples when she grew up in a difficult time period for people like that. That's why I look up to her.
