My twice-exceptional son was similar in early reading ability. I am sure he started out my memorizing words but before he turned 3 I know he was really reading because I could spell out the words without him even seeing the words on the page and he could identify them. I could spell out the words in newspaper comics when he was three and he could not only identify words spelled out for him that he had seen before, but words that I was sure he had not seen like the word surgery and especially.
