Young physicist with autism has higher IQ than Albert Einstein

Jacob Barnett was diagnosed with autism at the age of two. Doctors told his mother, Christine Barnett, that it was serious. And that it would take a lot of work for this child to at least understand the basics and learn the basic gestures of everyday life.

They said he would probably not be able to tie his own shoelaces. Of course, the mother followed the advice of specialists and even sent Jacob to a special school. Unfortunately, she suffered a setback.
The boy became more and more withdrawn and less and less able to speak.

It wasn’t an easy decision for her to make. But Christine is a strong person. She decided to take her son out of the public program and prepare him on her own. And today, her son, whom she raised as best she could, alone, in fear and uncertainty, is making progress.
His intellectual progress and thirst for knowledge are such that he is developing at an incredible rate, far surpassing his classmates in terms of knowledge.

Jacob enrolled at Indiana University, where he majored in physics, at the age of eleven.
Much of the credit goes to his mother, who with great love and patience helped the boy realize his potential.
But she says Jacob still has a lot of hard work ahead of him, and he needs to work on himself to overcome the difficulties associated with autism.
