Autistic Boy, 12, With IQ Higher than Einstein, Develops His Own Theory of Relativity

One of the things viagra now we want to do here on this site is shine a spotlight on the talents of kids – and adults – on the Autism Spectrum.

Thanks to the Race, we’ve had the privilege of meeting a lot of great people and going to a lot of great Autism-related events, and one of the things we’ve learned is that kids on the spectrum generally have something they LOVE above all else, and they devote an incredible amount of time and passion to THAT THING.

For Zev it was two things really – The Amazing Race, and The Lakers… but we’ve met kids who love game shows, bugs, chemistry, sports, music, geography… the list goes on.

This is an article about Jacob, a boy genius who has Autism and is “so far advanced in his Indiana university studies that professors are lining him up for a PHD research role.”

It’s an incredible story, and we want to hear more like it. Please share other stories like this with us that you may know of… what is YOUR child on the Spectrum into? What is THAT THING, and what are they doing to pursue it?

We really want to know — please share your experiences with us.

We want this to be a place that highlights the gifts that Autism gives, rather than focusing on the negatives.

Much Love,

Z & J
