how many people with autism can do math so well is because they have the ability to associate large sums, numbers or equations to shapes…this is considered a type of synesthesia. In autistic terms, if we can see it, we can do it. that is why some autistic people like me struggle so much with learning new languages or algebra…because we can’t picture such things in our minds, and we are visual thinkers.
