Savant Syndrome Facts:
- Savant syndrome is not a recognized medical diagnosis.
- Rare condition in which persons have one or more areas of expertise, ability or brilliance that are in contrast with the individual's overall limitations. (Treffert)
- About half of persons with savant syndrome have an autistic spectrum disorder.
- The other half usually have another disability (i.e. developmental disability, mental retardation, brain injury, optic nerve hypoplasia, or other disease).
- Clearly not all persons with savant syndrome have autistic disorder.
