"High Functioning Autism" explained

High Functioning Autism” , from a channel “Aspergers from the Inside”, apparently from the UK.

The speaker explains that Asperger’s is not simply autism with a normal or superior IQ.  He says it is struggle beneath what you can see.

He gives an example of an unemployed 55 year old man who seems to treat people badly.  He has lost his relationship and job and becoming homeless and can’t get back on the rails.  He did well earlier in life because people knew him.  But the economy and environment and political climate all change on him.
