Approximately 50% of all savants have autism, while only about five to ten percent of individuals with autism possess extraordinary savant skills.
Teen Club give teens with Aspergers or high-functioning autism a place to “hang out with their peers” while promoting friendship skills and social opportunities in a supported recreational setting. Activities include swimming nights, movie and game nights, outings to Fuddruckers, and many other activities.
