It is also known now that a gifted person can as well be afflicted with Aspergers - meaning it is even harder to notice.
Can anyone who knows something please add links or comments?

I'm not sure exactly what kind of info you are after, so sorry if this is no help... But a friend of mine has a daughter with suspected aspergers, not yet diagnosed, but she has been raving about "Tony Attwood website" alot and all the things she has learnt about girls with aspergers. Maybe you could google this guy?
A great book that helps to understand Asperger's in girls is 'Aspergirls' by Rudy Simone.
Aspergers in girls is far less common so I guess that's why there's less research wink
Many of the kids with Asperger's that I have taught are gifted in certain areas. Mostly the areas they have their obsessions with. A few boys I know have amazing maths skills and a couple are really great musicians.
