I have a 4 year old son called Jack, he has been reading since the age of 2 and a half and read fluently by 3.
At 2 and 8 months he could count to 20 out loud
He would put two playing cards together and tell you the number anything up to 99.
Could read 100 words +
could spell 50+ words
Knew all his alphabet and something associated with each letter.
Knew all his colours and the difference between pink and purple
Knew all his shapes
could used the computer
Knew the days of the week and most of the months
Could do simple addition
would play with coins and could count out specific amounts that you asked for.
Was obsessed with buses, knew the numbers of the buses where they came from and where they were going to.
He has an amazing memory
Now at 4 he loves numbers and doing maths, letters and spelling.
He has an aversion to noise and is not mixing at school which his teacher has spoken to me about a few times as they are also concerned and I am concerned that he might have aspergers.
Any opinions on this would be appreciated, sorry if I have rambled.
