Does Reid from “Criminal Minds” have autism
The CBS TV drama “Criminal Minds” has had many different actors playing members of the FBI’s behavioral health unit throughout its run. Few have been able to remain on the job the entire time though. One character constant though has been Dr. Spencer Reid. Matthew Gray Gubler (Dr. Spencer Reid, Criminal Minds character)He is a genius who definitely has some of the trappings of mild autism or Asperger’s, but the show has never made a definitive declaration. He is quick to remember mundane facts, but states that he has an eidetic memory. He is quirky and very intelligent, but he is socially awkward. Autism is not suggested though.
