So I have to brag about my 4yr old. All of my children are unbelievably quite intelligent and talk like little Einsteins. My Son has a mild form of Autism and has another year and a few months before starting Kinder but this boy since 3yrs old had academic placement levels at 1st grade levels which the Psychologist who did his testing told me. More specifically, although intelligent in everything he does, he really excels and has a fascination with numbers. He is doing addition and can add sums past 10 in his head without manipulatives, counts by 10's forward and backward, and up to 100 and all of this forward and backward. His Preschool Teacher told me he knows more than the Kinder kids next door to them. Its amazing to watch his little mind work. He still has some work ahead of him because his behavior at times can be challenging but I'm alot more hopeful for his future than I was just 2yrs ago. I always worried he'd never be able to hold a job, or get married, or make friends but he really is in a classroom with a teacher who really cares and makes such a difference in his life! I can never thank her enough!!
