Video: The bountiful mind of the autistic, acquired, and sudden savant

AutismHangout


Dr. Darold Treffert has spent almost 50 years studying the extraordinary mind of the savant. In this candid discussion, he provides insight, encouragement and techniques to help parents of autistic children develop their child's possible, savant tendencies.

Dr. Treffert is every bit as excited about his research today as he was 50 years ago. The brain has such potential... as do our special kids!
