"I Blamed Myself." Mom Who Believed Her 5-Year-Old Son Has Autism Was Emotional When IQ Test Shows That He's Actually A Child Genius
There's an interesting link between autism and genius. This is because, according to PsychologyToday, some of the symptoms may be similar.
For example, a child may be great at focusing on rare abstract situations and this could indicate a form of Autism Spectrum Disorder, but it could also mean the child has an exceptionally high IQ.
Other ASD symptoms such as behavioral issues and social interaction problems can also be similar to those of a high-IQ child who's not receiving enough mental stimulation, which was the case for this young boy.
