The boy who knew too much: a child prodigy

This is the true story of scientific child prodigy, and former baby genius, Ainan Celeste Cawley, written by his father. It is the true story, too, of his gifted brothers and of all the Cawley family. I write also of child prodigy and genius in general: what it is, and how it is so often neglected in the modern world. As a society, we so often fail those we should most hope to see succeed: our gifted children and the gifted adults they become. Site Copyright: Valentine Cawley, 2006 +

Hoagies Gifted: Gifted Resources Online

Hoagies Gifted is a general resource for the parents of gifted children - and the gifted children themselves. It covers a wide range of material that could be of help to anyone trying to raise a gifted child, well - or adjust to being one, in a world that mostly just doesn't understand. From gifted education, to identifying giftedness and explaining the differences between moderately gifted, highly gifted, exceptionally gifted and profoundly gifted - and the differing needs they invoke. I have found it useful in broadening my perspective on my sons' situations.

What Hoagies Gifted is doing complements what I am doing. I am writing of my own family, as a case study of giftedness, that can help others understand what such children are like. I will look at all aspects of giftedness, in time - and all situations relating to it, that I can either observe or speak knowledgeably of. From one example, described in detail, we can learn much of the nature of giftedness, and the issues the gifted face. Yet there is a need for more general material too - and that you can find at Hoagies Gifted at

If you have questions or comments about giftedness, genius, prodigy or even savant syndrome, just post a comment, or write to me and I will try to answer either privately, on in a post - whichever is more appropriate to the situation.
