I've have heard people use the "half autistic and half normal" description before. I disagree with it. I don't believe a person can be half autistic. They just have milder symptoms. Also, it is not true that all people with classic autism generally can not talk. It is not even true that most people with classic autism do not speak. There are MANY high-functioning people with classic autism. I am one of them. And those of us can be almost indistinguishable as adults from Aspergers in many ways, but do not qualify as Aspergers because of the language delay. There are many of us out there; we are not just a few.
