We have a young lad of 12 at our special school who has Learning Difficulties, mild CP and ASD. He generally presents at the levels one might expect of a child with SLD but he has always shown a particularly strong memory (For things that interest him!) but more recently is starting to present skills his parents are describing as Savant. If told a date in 2017 he appears to be able to state what day of the week it was and what he did that day. His verbal answer about what he did is simplistic and at the level one might expect from a 4 year old - but his ability to immediately say what day of the week it was is clearly exceptional. Google provides me with lots of interesting stories about incredible individuals BUT what parents want to know is . . .what are the implications for teaching him now we know he has this. Staff at our school are routinely trained in TEACCH, PECS, Attention Autism etc. so I am not asking how to teach a child with an Autistic Spectrum Condition, more specifically what advice does anyone have around working with a child with this particular skill? Thank you!
