Well, don't make jokes around him or be sarcastic, it really annoys us when people start laughing and we don't know why.
Yes, that's important - avoid sarcasm as sufferers won't notice it - they'll take you literally. Some can "learn" sarcasm and understand (well, one of my friendss seems to) but only if they know how each person does it, and they are a mild case.

I find it very difficult to determine when anyone is being sarcastic in real life and find it impossible to do so online. I also can never tell when people are making joks about me or are actually veing serious, which can be really annoying.

Changing topic slightly, the curious incident of the dog in the night-time is a really good book!

I read it in a day too. We were told by our English teacher to read it and I'm really glad I did.

You should. Mine was quite expensive because I accidently ordered the hardback copy, but you could get it out the library or borrow it off a friend for free

Yeah, sorry, I didn't realise until I just read the rest of the topic. I don't know how accurate the book is, so it would be interesting to see how you find it
