Savant skills educational strategies and curriculum

Update—October 2012
Savant skills educational strategies and curriculum

Dr. Trevor Clark has a special interest in developing teaching strategies and specific curriculum for persons with savant syndrome. Through his work, he has developed an educational strengths-based curiculum (the Savant Skill Curriculum) that combines education of gifted children strategies (enrichment, acceleration, and mentorship) with autism education (visual supports and social stories). The aim of these strategies is to develop functional skills which, when applied, show gains in behavior, social skills, academic self-esteem and communication skills. (Click here to download Dr. Clark’s fact sheet about autism and savant skills, along with a sample suggested curriculum in a specific case example.)
