    Teacher awareness regarding the identification of giftedness in students ASD, as well as identification of ASD in gifted students.
    We are studying ASD gifted students as an underserved population because we want to find out causes for teachers not recognizing the behaviors unique to gifted children among the ASD population, in order to help our readers (teachers) build cultural competence in identifying and developing the gifts and talents of students with ASD.
    This seems like this paper is going in the direction of a sort of "culture clash". One one hand we have the typical GT student, and we expect them to be a little quirky. We develop their talent but ignore issues that might impede them in their future, such as social skills, getting along in the workplace etc. On the other hand we have the ASD student and we focus on their deficiencies but neglect talent identification and development. Both of these possibilities are not developing the potential of the individual to its maximum. If ASD behaviors are part of a natural continuum, it seems that we should not label students as ASD but look at every GT student's unique profile of characteristics and provide all of the support needed for success in the adult world. Maybe the angle of the "big picture" "here should be that labels create prejudice. Once we label someone as ASD we see only that deficiency. Once we label someone as GT we see strength. In the overlap between GT and ASD, the degree to which individual potential is maximized is effectively by the flip of a coin - are you labeled by your strength or your weakness?

    Autism as culture.
    "Culture has been defined in a number of ways, but most simply, as the learned and shared behavior of a community of interacting human beings" (Useem & Useem, 1963, p. 169). Or, "the body of learned beliefs, traditions, and guides for behavior that are shared among members of any human society" (Barrett, 1984). Each culture has its own norms that are a unique collection of traits. Culture is to a group of people what personality is to an individual. Cultural traits originate in individuals, who create them to meet some need. However, traits do not become elements of a culture until they are adopted by a large number of the members of a group and passed on to future generations (Parks, 2003). Usually the term culture is associated with racial, ethnic, or regional groups, however, people with autism spectrum disorders come from many different races, ethnicities and regions. Do autistics have a unique culture? Can a group of people with a common condition constitute a culture?
