Burry's son was diagnosed with the syndrome in real life after he was rejected from multiple kingergartens. Burry only agreed to the testing at his wife's urging.

“He had apparently scored very low on tests involving art and scissor use,” Burry told Vanity Fair in 2010.

In the film, Burry talks about often feeling socially awkward and separated from people himself, because of his glass eye.
