Autism – The link between Autism and Extraordinary Talent

According to this TedTalk “Do child prodigies have a form of autism? In The Prodigy’s Cousin, Joanne Ruthsatz and Kimberly Stephens propose a startling possibility: what if child prodigies’ abilities stem from a connection with autism? Drawing on Ruthsatz’s years of original research, they trace this long-hidden connection from shared cognitive traits, like heightened attention to detail, to a true genetic link.

This inspiring story of extraordinary children, determined parents, and a researcher’s unorthodox hunch is essential reading for anyone interested in brain and human potential.”
