Those having the condition of autism find it really difficult to communicate and interact socially. As well, most autistic people simply cannot live independently and have to rely on someone. Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise’s hugely popular 1988 film Rain Man has led many to believe that autistic people have savant skills. This isn’t necessarily true and the case portrayed in the movie is not the rule.

The disorder affects the information processing capacity of the brain and has characteristic symptoms. It affects interaction between the nerve cells and synapses. The disorder appears in childhood and can rapidly progress with newer symptoms showing up as the child grows.
