An Investigation of the Calendar Calculation Ability of a Chinese Calendar Savant.
Ho, Eric D. F.; And Others
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v21 n3 p315-27 Sep 1991
A Chinese mentally retarded calendar savant (age 19) was evaluated for his exceptional proficiency in calendar calculation including converting the Gregorian calendar to the Chinese calendar. Results did not support hypotheses of use of eidetic imagery, high speed calculation, rote memorization, or keying-off (anchoring) strategies. (Author/DB)
