no, I would suggest to keep it on a reasonable level

and say that she is probably 'just' exstremely sensitive
and when frustration combines with the hysteric side, that is the the reaction you get

quite 'nomal' I would say, or logical

regarding children with such hysteric reaction, they have found that the best way to calm them down is to try and get their attention by directing their focus towards something they understand ... and keeping them calm and focused is the best way

but it may not be very good to let her have the power to make the rules
until better develloped and educated, spychopathic tendencies may occur

and it may be important to know another problem 'such people' suffer ...

their brain and emotional system is under constant stress

and then try to imagine what that can do to a person

"...I thought her school would be able to help..."

Yeah, in a way, like all other similar schools I guess. I always felt that more could be done but don't know how !

"...their brain and emotional system is under constant stress..."

Well she has no stress from family or others she meets regularly. But I can see that those 'gears ' are running all the time, apparently pretty fast ! Like it 'possibly' takes a lot of effort to respond to things said to her. A pity that no one can see inside her mind........unless maybe a real psychic ?
She loves to cook ! AND has a photographic memory for practically everything. Never forgets someone, even those she met years ago ! Very good with the computer !
The good Lord gave her a lot of capabilities that the average person doesn't have but the 'people interface' got scrambled.
But I'm glad that even with all this she brings a lot of cheer to people.

Having a nice personality helps. My nephew is an autistic adult. When he was a child, you could put all the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle on the table, face down. Without ever looking at the fronts, he'd have the whole thing assembled perfectly in minutes.

The way brains are wired and function is one of the most interesting research areas in science, for sure.

I always think,

that these "gifts" such as dates and calendar are very interesting (maths and drawing). The brain can obviously do or is capable of such things. I wonder why it is dormant in other people? What would the world be like if we could all do it?

Along the psychic side I would try to distance her from it. Even if there might seem to be something. The world is difficult enough without falling down the rabbit hole.
I remember a film in the past called the cube (scifi) that had a twist with maths calculation. (Just for fun)

Regards
M. Gregg

I wonder why people call it a 'gift'. I wouldn't like to be 'gifted' in that kind of way. My 'gift' is not to know what day is today. Anyway, if something is not normal it must be extraordinary....or crap.

And I don't understand the thread title.

Yeah, Hollywood digs those stories. Here's another one - not autistic but they made him look like one. Not a coincidence.
