Things you should read
The Speed of Dark. Novel, by Elizabeth Moon.
(Note: Conflict of Interest: I score highly enough on the autism spectrum that I would probably have been diagnosed as such if I hadn’t been both extremely verbal and moderately functional.)
The Ice. Short story by Steven Popkes.
Send Me A Mentagram. Short story by Dominic Green. One of the few plausibly-written examples of first-person writing from a genius’ perspective.
