Stephen Wiltshire is a 33-year-old autistic man with an extraordinary talent. He is one of less than 100 people in the world who is recognised as an autistic savant. Whereas some savants excel in mathematics or music, Stephen is an accomplished artist, and is capable of producing highly accurate drawings of buildings and cities after seeing them just once. Although Stephen is today a quiet and confident young man, he endured a difficult childhood as family and teachers struggled to cope with his autism - a condition that was, at the time, very poorly understood and rarely diagnosed.
