More testing is required for kids on different parts of the spectrum to confirm this.  But if it's confirmed, it could help with figuring how to help fix the pathway.

Autistics and Savants 

So I was one of the many that watched the movie Rain Man.  Looking back, I really thought that the character played by Dustin Hoffman was Autistic.  It turns out, the character was based on a real life person and although similarities exist, he was not Autistic.

I read the following article that I was very interesting around Autistic people, Savants and what people on the spectrum can achieve : http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2015/09/autism-hidden-advantages/406180/
