Hyperlexia research. For nerdy people like me. 

I am a research junkie. In particular, I love to read through academic and scentific journals about topics that interest me, including autism and hyperlexia.

Just the other week someone in my hyperlexia support group had a good chuckle about me reading an article about fMRI imaging and hyperlexia on a Saturday morning! See, totally nerdy!

So if you are interested in learning about hyperlexia through scientific research and academic journals, then you're in luck! There's 25+ research articles and studies below to read through. You know...in case you are a research nut like me or you need a little light bedtime reading.
