This guy in my class says he's autistic but he speaks fine and talks to people. I thought autistic people isolate them self from others though?

Anon, I’m very sorry, but you have been very misinformed about autism. It’s not your fault and this kind of misinformation is very widespread.

Here are a few links that accurately describe what autism can look like:

ASAN’s page about autism: http://autisticadvocacy.org/home/about-asan/about-autism/

Alternative autism criteria created by autistic people (based on innate inclination rather than observable behavior): http://autisticproblems.tumblr.com/post/128581254807

List of atypical* autism traits: http://p-3a-s-life-resources.tumblr.com/post/115347374289/atypical-autism-traits

* prior to the DSM 5’s condensing of autistic diagnoses into Autism Spectrum Disorder, PDD-NOS or “atypical autism” was the most common autistic diagnosis given under DSM labeling (I believe that a similar thing is currently true for the ICD labeling of autism-spectrum diagnoses?)
