An 11-year-old autistic boy drew this incredible world map from memory

A few days ago on reddit, user bobitis explained that an 11-year-old walked into his daughter's college lecture and drew this map on the whiteboard...entirely from memory. The incredibly detailed diagram doesn't just show the overall shape of the continents in mind-blowing detail, it also shows the political divides of modern countries and includes those little frozen islands up in the Arctic Circle that are shrinking as you read this.





The images have since gone viral, and highlight the fact that, while autism can limit some children's social skills, it can also greatly enhance other strengths, including [url=http://www.du.edu/psychology/dnrl/Intact and impaired memory.pdf]visual memory skills and the ability to learn by rote[/url].
