Wow! Tiddler, you gave me yet another perspective on this unique child. He fits most of the characteristics of Dabrowski’s overexcitabilities. This child (who will be 7 in 5 days) reads adult material and can carry on very involved discussions of historical topics that interest him. He can’t write (he reverses letters and numbers, and sometimes writes them upside down) and gets so frustrated he gives up. But his reading and verbal skills are off the charts. He focuses very well when he is stimulated by an activity that interests him.

I will continue to address the vestibular deficiencies (he shows weekly improvement from the exercises) and continue to support his intellectual development. I am glad I am in a position to home school him, as even pre-kindergarten (his only attempt at public school) was dismal. When he took a satellite image of Antarctica for his “A” homework (and he knew exactly what the image was before I told him), the teacher asked me to send pictures the other children could relate to. I believe he is going to be a quite high functioning adult.

btw, he asked for a trumpet at age 5, and when I found a good used one on Ebay, he blew notes within 5 minutes. He has the energy of a rock star. We had to temporarily stop lessons while his front permanent teeth grew in.
