Memory and Autism

Autistic artist, Robyn Steward

Memory is the mental capacity or faculty of retaining and reviving facts, events, impressions, etc., or of recalling or recognising previous experiences

Some people on the autism spectrum are reported to have remarkably good memories for certain things.

For example, some individuals can recite entire train timetables or bus routes from memory.

However, some people on the autism spectrum have very poor memories for certain things.

For example, some individuals with autism find it very difficult to remember names or faces.
