    OMG!!! I'm so jealous!!
    She is an amazing person, I watched the film about her, and have the "thinking in pictures" book.
    I think the same way as her but have no autistic traits - i can manipulate 3D models in my head etc. My son is very "quirky" and had ASD traits but isn't either (he's very mathy/sciencey).
