Acceleration – Here we come!!! Part 2

After attending the school holiday camp, Izz was accepted to join the gifted school. As the Form 1 students’ age ranges from 11 to 12 years old, Izz would need a shadow to assist him in class. Izz is like a lot of other hyperlexic children, asynchronous in his learning. He may be advanced in Mathematics and science but not so in English, Islamic studies, and History. He was allowed to attend only Mathematics and Chemistry classes for Form 1. In a week, he could attend classes and come to class only twice per week. He also learned the piano privately. The other days were filled with therapies and attending other classes for his age part-time.
He was happy to attend the classes and learned happily at first in Form 1. He could discuss and talk with others that understand him and the level of learning is more or less the same. As the days go by, he was showing his regression as for the classes with the same age peers, he was showing problems and being a nuisance as the pace was too slow. We tried to apply for more classes from the gifted school but considering his age, they were not prepared to take him at that moment.

For six months he learned and made friends and loves to answer questions in class. He will have lunch with his gifted school classmates every time he goes to class. He will talk and play with his other classmates in the gifted school when he has time. As for the classes he attends with peers his age, he tries to play with them and talk to them but when talking it seems the wavelength is different as he has been friends with older children. We try to balance out this situation by talking to him about it and we work with our therapists and teachers.
