DS6 may have an interesting thing going on with visualization... He has said before that he sees everything in his head, and Im starting to think its true. Today, he asked me if I could help him zip up his c-o-a-t. I said Thats some pretty good spelling, DS6. He is learning French at school, not English at the moment. He replied: Yeah, I just picture the word in my head and I see how its spelled. And he gave me the example of window, and he was basically gesturing as though he were looking at an invisible screen. Is that a bit odd? Has anyone else experienced this with their DC?

I gave my DD8 a simple algebra problem
4X + 4 = 2

She solved it without writing it down, and my wife asked her how she did it. DD explained that she did it by manipulating a number line in her head. I can't verify that of course, but I have no real reason to suspect she's lying.
