“May be a self-taught reader, been hyperlexic as a child, and will possess a wide variety of other self-taught skills as well.” For me, there has always been this divide with reading. While I was certainly hyperlexic with both words and numbers, I am only a fast reader with books that I’m especially interested in. It’s almost like a book has to become a special interest, otherwise I can hardly bring myself to pick it up. As a child, I also taught myself html code, and I’m self-taught in a variety of other computer skills. Interestingly, I dabbled in teaching myself palm-reading when I was 13, although I don’t use that skill anymore.
