Hello and welcome to my blog. I'm no expert on hyperlexia but I have learned more than I ever wanted to know about this disorder over the last few years. My son Will, who is now 5, has this disorder and my research has revealed so little information that I felt compelled to generate a current source for parents who are just learning about hyperlexia for the first time as well as providing a place for those with a diagnosis of hyperlexia to gather. In the months since I started this blog I have found many other moms who are also sharing their experiences. Visit the blog roll to visit their blogs and learn about their amazing stories too. Please contribute.. it's easy! Just click on the comments link at the bottom of a post and share your own experiences.
Thanks again! =)
Another example of my son's early reading abilities came in his reaction to the end credits of a movie. Now granted, they usually are accompanied by the music score from the film, which in itself might be enough to get him to come running, but he loves to watch the credits roll by! When he was younger, around 2, we would joke that they were his favorite part of the movie. I've heard other parents of hyperlexic kids say the same thing so here we have yet another example of the unique behaviors that go hand in hand with this disorder. I love to hear him blurt out things like "Production Designer" or "In Between Artist". Those certainly are not words he's been hearing anywhere.. what a kick!
