In all my research, I’ve found a lot of reference to creativity being heightened among autistics. There have even been a couple of sites I’ve stumbled upon that talk about famous authors and what not who might have been autistic. So I googled “Autism and creativity” and found this article.
I’m really short on time today, so I’m going to leave the article to speak for itself. I did want to mention though, that somewhere in my reading, I found that Darryl Hannah says she has a form of autism. You know, the mermaid from ‘Splash’. I don’t have anything to cite on that though, so you can go digging if you’re curious. I also read that Dan Akroyd has says he has it, but no one can tell if he’s joking. Hmmm. Not sure how I feel about that.
