www.azarius.net Mensa International, a non-profit international organization for people with very high scores in IQ tests, has just recruited into its roster a three year old tot as its newest member.
Tests conducted on Sherwyn revealed he has an IQ of 136, which is categorised as being included in the top 1 per cent of the intelligent people in the world.
The boy, whose reading age is equivalent to that of a six-year-old, began speaking at 10 months and was already speaking and talking in full sentences at 20 months. At two years old, Sherwyn could already read, count to 200, recognise and name countries, flags, planets in the solar system, parts of the body and internal organs.
''It's not like talking to a three-year-old. He doesn't even watch children's programs, he watches the news,'' Amanda Sarabi, Sherwyn's 36 year old mother and a former teacher, said.
