This is an interesting article about genius. Although it does not mention autism, we think many of us can identify, as the problems of genius mentioned in the article are often the problem of autism too, not only isolation and poor social skills, but also very sharp senses (they don’t mention “sensory overload” in the article, but that’s what it is and it appears that many geniuses suffer from sensory overload according to the article).
Good (very early) morning.

Some reference books are listed at the end of the article if you are interested in the subject (whether for yourself or for your child).
