Balanced research and practice
Clinical practice shows that health professionals often struggle differentiating autism spectrum disorders (ASD) from giftedness. Unfamiliarity with overlap and differences between these two can lead to incorrect or missed ASD diagnoses. This can lead to either overtreatment or undertreatment of potential problems. For this reason, a whitepaper was developed. The white paper can help diagnosticians make a thorough distinction between ASD and giftedness to prevent misdiagnosis. The whitepaper has already been found to be very helpful for diagnosticians and psychologists, and also patients.
