title Hyperlexia Demonstration and the Pathology of a Skill
description Hyperlexia, or precocious reading ability, is sometimes found in children with autistic spectrum disorders. This video highlights it as a super skill that's part of autism's awesomeness, and criticizes the organization Autism Speaks for framing it as a pathological condition accompanying disability. [Depeche Mode's Master and Servant is an odd choice for background music.] There's also a link to a blog with an old press release from Georgetown University announcing The Neural Basis of Hyperlexic Reading: An fMRI Case Study, Turkeltaub et al., Neuron, 2004 (link). From the abstract: "Hyperlexic reading is therefore associated with hyperactivation of the left superior temporal cortex, much in the same way as developmental dyslexia is associated with hypoactivation of this area."
