The evening news this week based in Halifax Nova Scotia, near where I live, showed a pretty upbeat bit about an autistic guy. Actually they called it PDD. He is in his 20's and really likes catalogues, it's his major interest. He goes through stacks and stacks of them, ripping the up, posting and cutting out pages. The family had all kinds of catalogues donated to them by a company. I thought it was a pretty nice story considering all the crap you usually hear.
It focused on an autistic person's interests rather than their deficiencies.

This is a good thing to see that some people talk positively about it.
