    Ok finished it Still don't see the scienceShe chose a number of prodigy's using the theory that they had to be professionals before age 10 OK why Well someone else's researchNature vs nurture was ignored To be blunt if the families hadn't fed the obsession supplied everything from books to teachers to materials to travel

    In spite of it's intriguing title The Prodigy's Cousin presented little scientific evidence to link prodigies with autistic savants both of which seem to have exceptional memory due to a heightened attention to detail The one study

    Very interesting read accessible to those who are not scientifically minded If you're looking for the scientific research and proof you're not going to find much to go on here but I believe the author's intention was to share her ideas with a wider audience raising public interest in further studies of prodigies in order to possibly unlock the mysteries of autism

    Honestly I was expecting but then I spend most of my autism related reading in the realm of research into mitochon

    I miss in the book common exemples In the one hand the authors have only chosen to talk about children with such an intelligence that is only p

    This book was so enlightening and interesting to read It was an easy read which was perfect for someone like me who isn't a science or medical professional This is not for someone who doesn't have an open mind Joanne Ruthsatz writes about possibilities theories and ideas It's not a book of scientific proof which may be misleading to some readers What I really appreciated about this book is that Joanne wrote about each person as just that a

    Very interesting book as I have a gifted child of my own I won this book from a Goodreads giveaway

    This is a book that's all about possibilities not proofs And I think as long as you're willing to approach the book as such you'll be a satisfied reader If nothing else I was reminded about how much we still don't know about child prodigies or autistic individuals But beyond that this book certainly did enough to convince me that it's worth researching the autismprodigy connection further Perhaps a link is there perhaps not Eithe

    The idea of prodigies and their accomplishments was interesting but the book just seemed dragged out and the comparisons with autism was laid out randomly and weirdly I enjoyed the stories and the part of finding related genes betwee

Of the children they have studied including that of a two year old who loved to spell words like “algorithm” and “confeder­ation” a six year old painter who churned out mas­terpieces faster than her parents could hang them and a typically developing thirteen year old who smacked his head against a church floor and woke up a music prodigy  This inspiring tale of extraordinary children indomitable parents and a researcher’s unorthodox hunch is essential reading for anyone interested in the brain and human potential Ruthsatz and Stephens take us from the prodigies’ homes to the depths of the autism archives to the cutting edge of genetics research all while upending our under­standing of what makes exceptional talent possibl The idea of prodigies and their accomplishments was interesting but the book just seemed dragged out and the comparisons with autism was laid out randomly and weirdly I enjoyed the stories and the part of finding related genes between autism and prodigy children aswell as the stories of savants and how deterioring dementia patients sometimes also experience this burst of talent but I feel like these ideas could have encompassed a lot shorter

The Prodigys Cousin

We all know the autistic genius stereotypes The absentminded professor with untied shoelaces The geeky Silicon Valley programmer who writes bullet­proof code but can’t get a date But there is another set of tiny geniuses whom you would never add to those ranks child prodigies We mostly know them as the chatty and charming tykes who liven up day­time TV with violin solos and engaging banter These kids aren’t autistic and there has never been any kind of scientific connection between autism and prodigy  Until now  Over the course of her career psychologist Joanne Ruthsatz has uietly assembled the largest ever research sample of these children Their accomplishments are epic One could reproduce radio tunes by ear on a toy guitar at t In spite of it s intriguing title The Prodigy s Cousin presented little scientific evidence to link prodigies with autistic savants both of which seem to have exceptional memory due to a heightened attention to detail The one study citing prodigies with close relatives who are autistic had an ultra small sample Ruthsatz focused on case histories of prodigies a fascination of the author s I think There was some attention given to the search for a genetic link between prodigies and autists but it is early in the game and the preliminary results are not conclusive Since so much space was devoted to prodigies future possible studies came to my mind For instance a lot not all of the ultra talented children cited were raised in families I would describe as uirky These were such extremely child focused families that the offsprings s every wish was accommodated no matter at what expense Can this form of catering produce child geniuses Or were the little geniuses already programmed to make the world bend to their wishes What are the statistics on prodigies raised in poor environments where a musical genius in the making doesn t have access to a piano say More uestions than answers made this book very unsatisfying for me

Wo years old Another was a thirteen year old cooking sensation And what Ruthsatz’s investigation revealed is noth­ing short of astonishing Though the prodigies aren’t autistic many have autistic family members Each prodigy has an extraordinary memory and a keen eye for detail well known but often overlooked strengths associated with autism  Ruthsatz and her daughter and coauthor Kim­berly Stephens now propose a startling possibility What if the abilities of child prodigies stem from a genetic link with autism And could prodigies children who have many of the strengths of autism but few of the challenges be the key to a long awaited autism breakthrough  In The Prodigy’s Cousin Ruthsatz and Stephens narrate the poignant stories I miss in the book common exemples In the one hand the authors have only chosen to talk about children with such an intelligence that is only present in 1 of a million or less so they re not really representative of the reality In the other hand they only show autistic children with extraordinary talents savants or extremely intelligent and then the authors try to compare autistic children with prodigies Well the truth is that autistic children with such habilities are a minority so again they are not talking about the most probable casesAnyway what it s clear is that prodigies and autistics have many things in common and probably share a genetic mutation in the same chromosomes as the authors explainBut if you re looking for a book to learn about what it is autism or intellectual giftedness this is not the best book so better to read it if you previously know something about both conditions
