Quoting mama3trish:" My son is considered to be hyperlexic-but it is not something formally diagnosed. My son does not speak ... [snip!] ... no bearing in terms of treatment, but it is important to let teachers know so that they can teach based on his/her strengths."
How old is he?
My daughter says some things. Like if I point to a cow and say "cow" she'll say "cow", or if I say "night night" she'll say "night night" (sometimes). And she can sing a million songs word for word. But she doesn't actually use words on her own to communicate. She can't answer questions at all or tell you what she wants. But she's extremely fixated with numbers, letters, and books. She knows all of her letters and the sounds they make and she has to stop and "read" everything.
