Daniel is very lucky in his savantness because he can still socialize very well. He doesn't seem to have any socialization problems, in fact, although they say he has Aspergers.

Re: Daniel


The dude can learn a totally new language in a week! I really want to read more about him and this ability because I'm hoping to give my kid Cantonese, French and Spanish at least.

I enjoyed this very much. Thanks!
