I will never forget that day when at just two years old I discovered my son could read. He had never been taught, it was never a goal of ours to read before preschool. Somehow, he just figured it out, all on his own. I often joke that he learned to read sentences before he could speak them, but it was true. Reading taught him to speak. For hours, I would sit in aww, watching him do his thing. It truly was astounding. He never ceased to continue the surprises--- learning to add and subtract in preschool, with no help, learning basic multiplication as early as kindergarten or so. You see, my son- in addition to being autistic- is also hyperlexic. Reading came very naturally to him, without so much as a lesson. It made for some interesting experiences when he was younger- no spelling out secrets, no saying 'oh, nope, they're closed!' when he could clearly read the signs... but it was also fun to watch!

There truly is something truly fascinating about the minds of the gifted... especially gifted children! This is why I personally cannot wait to see the new movie releasing April 7, Gifted:

Frank Adler (Chris Evans) is a single man raising a child prodigy - his spirited young niece Mary (Mckenna Grace) - in a coastal town in Florida.  Frank's plans for a
 normal school life for Mary are foiled when the seven-year-old’s mathematical abilities come to the attention of Frank’s formidable mother Evelyn (Lindsay Duncan) whose plans for her granddaughter threaten to separate Frank and Mary.  Octavia Spencer plays Roberta, Frank and Mary’s landlady and best friend.  Jenny Slate is Mary’s teacher, Bonnie, a young woman whose concern for her student develops into a connection with her uncle as well. 

Sounds fantastic, right? It's not just the story of one gifted child, but the impact that has on those in their lives.  I know I will be watching it as soon as possible! Ready to learn more? You can check out and connect at the links below:
