Autism and Savant
Syndrome:
THE GOOD DOCTOR SEASON ONE EPISODE 0NE
Introduction
• Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and savant syndrome are
explored through the character of Dr. Shaun Murphy in "The
Good Doctor."
• This episode delves into the genetic and environmental factors,
symptoms, management strategies, and differences between
high and low functioning individuals with autism.
Genetic vs. Environmental Influences
• Both genetic variations and prenatal/perinatal factors
contribute to ASD development.
• Studies have identified mutations in brain development genes
and environmental influences such as maternal infections.
• The interplay between genetics and environment in ASD is
complex and multifaceted
Symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorder
• ASD symptoms include social interaction challenges,
communication difficulties, and repetitive behaviors.
• Individuals may struggle with understanding nonverbal cues,
delayed language development, and adherence to routines.
• Symptoms vary widely among individuals with ASD.
Savant Syndrome
• Savant syndrome refers to exceptional abilities in specific
domains, such as music or mathematics, alongside
developmental conditions like autism.
• About 10% of individuals with autism exhibit savant skills,
highlighting cognitive diversity.
• The underlying mechanisms of savant skills involve atypical
brain connectivity and information processing.
Management Strategies
• Effective management involves a multidisciplinary approach
tailored to individual needs.
• Early intervention services, educational support, and
accommodations help promote social communication and
independence.
• Interventions targeting sensory sensitivities and co-occurring
conditions improve overall functioning.
High Functioning vs. Low Functioning
Autism
• The terms "high functioning" and "low functioning"
oversimplify ASD and fail to capture its complexity.
• High functioning autism typically involves average to above-
average intellectual abilities and mild social communication
impairments.
• Low functioning autism is associated with significant
intellectual disabilities and greater support needs, but these
distinctions are arbitrary and do not reflect individual strengths
and potential for growth.
