All fine and well, but what I would like to know is how they will go about identifying these children. I have seen too many fall through the cracks and labeled "arrogant, naughty, disrespectful, HDHD and flighty", simply because they are bored and know the stuff educators attempt to "teach" them. IQ testing has been abolished in schools, so even that filament for determination of potential has fallen by the wayside.
On top of this, I have seen two spectrums of behaviour in these kids, they either retreat to their own inner worlds and go about doing the "right thing" by toeing the line and shutting up around adults or they lash out with behavioural problems in their teenage years.
I had the privilege to observe one such child grow up, at 7 months this kid was sitting in front of a kitchen cupboard opening and closing the door and repeating to himself "open" and he opens the door, and "close" when closing the door. He picked up words and used them in his own language (completely fragmented) instead of making sounds like other kids his age. He's busy doing his second degree now but is all over the place because the world is far too interesting to focus on one single thing. His parents had utter hell attempting to get him to focus on any one thing for any period of time, he would read the full textbook for a subject in week one of his school year and stuff around for the rest of the year because he knew the stuff after one reading.
