What Is Hyperlexia?

Hyperlexia is a syndrome that is characterized by a child's precocious ability to read - which is far above what would be expected at their age. However, they have significant difficulty in understanding and using verbal language. They may also have  a profound nonverbal learning disability and significant problems during social interactions. Many of the social challenges that are seen in hyperlexic children or adults are similar to those found in autism. Hyperlexic children will learn to speak only by rote memory and after heavy repetition.  They may also have difficulty learning the rules of language from examples or from trial and error. Some professionals conclude that hyperlexia is autism, whereas others say hyperlexia is a completely different condition.
