Einstein Syndrome

(redirected from Bright Children Who Talk Late)
A term referring to the speech delay—e.g., no conversations before age four—that occurs in some exceptionally bright people, who are otherwise almost identical to children with Asperger syndrome. Children with the 'syndrome' are usually boys with highly educated parents; they may be musically gifted and have exceptional puzzle solving abilities, but lag in toilet training and social skills
