Research data confirms that high intellectual potential is associated with very different developmental profiles. One of these has common features with autism spectrum disorders (Boschi et al., Front. Psychol. 7:1605, 2016). The co-occurrence of giftedness and autism is the prototype of what can be described as the oddly behaving gifted individual. Extraordinariness is mostly treated as a disorder by the normality-expecting community until it manifests itself in outstanding performance. For this reason, autistic gifted people have to cope with even greater social-emotional challenges than are normally experienced.
