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 +

A realm of misunderstanding

This is a post for someone I cannot write to, directly.

This person posted their misunderstanding of Ainan's situation. They had got the impression that no academic was interested in working with him. This is not so. There are a few who are. One in particular has been very helpful, but has actually little time spare from his position. Yet, he has done what he can to assist.

Another academic is presently preparing the way for Ainan to be actively engaged with them, on an ongoing basis, in the areas of his interest. This should begin soon - but I won't preempt it by revealing any details at this time.

So, contrary to this poster's view, academics do understand Ainan's need and some are willing to help.

(If you would like to learn more of Ainan Celeste Cawley, a scientific child prodigy, aged eight years and no months, or his gifted brothers, Fintan, four years and five months, and Tiarnan, twenty-two months, please go to: I also write of gifted education, IQ, intelligence, the Irish, the Malays, College, University, Chemistry, Science, genetics, left-handedness, precocity, child prodigy, child genius, baby genius, adult genius, savant, gifted adults and gifted children in general. Thanks.)
