My nephew is Autisic as well as having eye sight and speech problems. He wasn't diagnoised until he was nearly 10 but then he was put into a special school that dealt with neurological problems and did very well. He was able to be mainstreamed back to the public schools by the 8th grade.

He is 21 now, doesn't have friends, will never be able to drive (can't see good enough besides the Autism) he can work part time in a very controlled setting but finding a company willing to give him the monitoring needed has been difficult.
