I am not sure what kind of disappointment that would be for you. The piece was referring specifically to autistic kids, to their ability (conscious or unconscious) to focus on details that would normally be perceived as "background noise". And I don't think all autistic people are that way either.
I saw the segment this morning, and one thing I did not get (I missed a few minutes of it) is why Teller had his face obfuscated while he was interviewed.
