Is it possible for her to be doing all of this and not be hyperlexic? Or is it pretty much a given if your child starts reading at 21 months? Is this something that is classified as a learning disorder? Do I need to do something?
As the mother of a hyperlexic boy, I can say that there is not much that stands out to me as hyperlexic with her other than the liking letters and numbers. Since she's Dom's sister she's no doubt quirky at the least, and on the spectrum at the most - but hyperlexic she ain't. I wouldn't rule out some milder spectrum diagnosis for her as she gets older but she's definitely not hyperlexic.
I learned to read before I was able to form memories of doing so, so like, 2 to 3? and I see Gilbert happily soaking up all the letter related stuff he can now. He knows all the letters by sight and can also reverse-identify, like we say a consolant sound /tuh/ and he says "T!" etc. And he's not autistic as far as I can tell, just a bright little boy.
So anyway, that's my .02. Maybe mildly spectrum-y but def. not hyperlexic :-D
