An autistic 11-year-old boy drew this world map from memory

We’d struggle to draw a map of the JOE office from memory, let alone the entire world.

An autistic 11-year-old boy walked into a classroom and drew an amazingly accurate world map from memory.

The youngster from New York drew the map - complete with borders between countries and tiny coastal islands - standing on a chair at times to complete his masterwork.

Reddit user Bobitis, who posted the images online says:

“He is the son of one of my daughter’s professors. He came into the classroom today and did this.

“I was amazed...especially as a father of a child with similar attributes.”

No-one fully understands why some people with autistic disorders are capable of incredible feats of memory like this.
