Oh yes. My nephew is like mom2's dd - he has such a mild form of it that if you didn't know he's autistic, you wouldn't know. He's fully functioning, he does have his little quirks, but he's totally opposite of most of they typical "symptoms" usually looked at - I think it's because of the schooling & therapy he's gotten, because he did show more signs when he was little.
But then on the other hand there's a little girl in our church that you can tell, just by watching her for 5-10 minutes (as long as you know what autism is - ignorant people think she's just undisciplined).
