I was just reading about this teenager Jacob Barnett age 14 years and has Autism. Jacob was diagnosed at the age of 2 years old with moderate to severe autism. His mother was told that he would never read or do anything that he is doing now. He is not only reading but tipped to be a future Nobel Prize winner. He is currently studying for his  Master’s degree in quantum physics.

This story about Jacob Barnett is a wonderful article about what potential there is for many people on the challenge spectrum. Not all can be geniuses but ALL have potential! His mother made sure that he got the proper education that he needed for his special needs. Even geniuses have challenges of their own that need to addressed.

I congratulate Jacob and his family on their continued success 🙂
