The Top Ten

1 Daniel Tammet

This list inspires me so much. I have a little brother with autism, and seeing people like this makes me believe in him. Maybe he can't talk or read or write. But he's perfect the way he is. I love you Joey. Love your older sister Laura.

2 Temple Grandin
3 Satoshi Tajiri Satoshi Tajiri Satoshi Tajiri is a Japanese video game designer best known as the creator of the Pokémon franchise and the founder of video game developer Game Freak.

Didn't Game Freak create Earthbound as well?

4 Albert Einstein Albert Einstein

Einstein talked about creativity, and he had a unique way of looking at things. As an autistic woman who loves writing and drawing (and isn't half bad at math either), it's exciting to see other deep thinkers embrace both sides of the brain and use their imaginations. People assume autistic people have zero imagination, but I find the opposite: some of the most creative people I know are autistic.
