Autism isn't what you'd expect. This is the life of Sue, a 26 year old austic woman (who looks many years younger). She can communicate through typing, but is very limited in speech. She is very intelligent, and goes to college. She says that she doesn't understand why she makes unusual noises, and doesn't mean to make them.

Please watch this movie. It will help you to understand the minds of autistic people you may come across. They aren't stupid or crazy. Instead, their bodies do things that the people inside don't wish them to do.
