Every individual with High-Functioning Autism (HFA) is extremely different, which can make providing treatment very difficult.

They have unique abilities in visual-spatial processing, rule-following, sensory perception, and detailed memory, but also deficits in executive functioning, integrative processing, and other complex cognitive skills.
