A way to visually explain autism on an individual level

This was an article I came across awhile ago which I found interesting. A father by the name of Michael McWatters created a visual graphic in an effort to help define the challenges that may lie ahead for his own son who is on the spectrum. He has included the three most commonly accepted axes of autism – social, communication, behavioural – and designed a simple yet very effective tool to ‘plot’ an individual’s abilities for each.
