Savantism [index]

Category: Illness or disabilities



Introduction and description

A savant is a person who expresses extraordinary mental abilities, often in the fields of numerical calculation, art, or music but usually set within the context of autism.  

It is worth adding that the word Savant can also mean a person  of great knowledge in a particular subject, without remarking on the person's overall state of intellect. Savantism in children is a relatively rare phenomenon. Depending on estimates, from 0.5% to 10% of individuals with ASD show unusual abilities.
