Gifted Children with Asperger's Syndrome.
Neihart, Maureen
Gifted Child Quarterly, v44 n4 p222-30 Fall 2000
This article proposes that gifted children with Asperger's syndrome may not be identified because their unusual behaviors may be wrongly attributed to either their giftedness or to a learning disability. Ways in which the syndrome might be missed and guidelines for differentiating characteristics of giftedness from Asperger's characteristics are discussed. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
