In conclusion, we evaluated the film Rain Man but more specific
Raymon. We used the DSM to diagnose Raymon with Autism. Even though he was
impaired in some aspects in life. He also had the ability to excel in others. His
memory was absolutely incredible and could possibly be called a super human
ability. We also discussed some methods on how to treat autism such at the Applied
Behavior Analysis. Where a therapist would help him reinforce better behaviors.
Raymon shows signs of savant autism but the film gives us a misleading
perception because they over exaggerated the ability’s that Raymon proclaim to
have. You don’t picture people having autism counting cards. The reality is
that autism is less optimistic then the movie betrays it to be.
