Other historical artists and musicians that are in doubt are; Mozart and Michelangelo.
  • Susan Boyle: with her musical voice, Susan Boyle managed to sell 14 million albums despite her ASD diagnosis. 
  • Tony DeBlois: Not only is Tony on the Autism spectrum, but he is also blind. This has not stopped him from becoming the great pianist that he is.

The term “twice-exceptional” is used to describe children who are gifted but have some form of disability. For example, a twice-exceptional child might have poor verbal skills, but brilliant visual-spatial skills.
