rehearse their crafts (Hughes et al., 2018). However, the lack of cohesion in identifying the specific cause of autistic savant syndrome testifies to the need for further research on the topic. Treatment Autistic savant syndrome does not deteriorate the health of an individual; hence, it does not warrant any treatment or medication. Instead, measures should be taken to enhance the discovered abilities. Hughes et al. (2018) note that savants, like memory athletes, require practice. Children are best served by exposure to curriculums and programs that focus on reinforcing their talents. These sessions will enable them to build and expand their skills while interacting with like-minded individuals. To conclude, autistic savant syndrome manifests itself when individuals with autism also show genius proficiency in areas including art, mathematics, and recall ability. While the specific cause of the condition is not yet explicitly known, it seems to relate to the autism traits of obsession and mind-blindness. Hence, they should receive exposure to programs that focus on enhancing their talents.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
