According to the deaf specialist at Winchester, I'm one of the most intelligent deaf people in the whole of the UK...I didn't want to believe that.

But when I was two years old and doctors were trying to find out how much I knew, they did a series of tests.

I only found out about this story a couple of weeks ago.

A guy came round and he was going to test me on how much I knew, I was two years old. He had done a series of tests to begin with to do with numbers, and I replied by saying what the number was...well...I mumbled because I couldn't speak properly. He had a small bag of cards with a number on each of them. Labelled one to twenty. He held up a card with, let's say three was on it, and asked me what the number was. I replied and he put it down in front of him.

Now this is what I was suprised at when I was told this story, I had picked up the card, turned it round so it was facing him, and had put it to his left. Each card that he held up, I answered and he then gave the card to me with complete suprise. By the time the test was over, I had placed the cards labelled one to twenty in order, facing him.

Now this is what suprised me even more. He said to my mum that getting the numbers in order would be the work of a 5-6 year old. But then to have them backwards facing the other person would be the work of a 7-8 year old.

Since then I've just been fluent in numbers and Maths, and for my year 6 SATS in Maths...:D...I got 100/100. :jmp:

Were you a bright child when you were young?
