Jacob Gleize uses big words for a 6-year-old - or for any age.
"He watched 'Charlotte's Web,' and he would go around saying, 'Salutations,' when he'd meet people," said Jill Gleize, Jacob's mom.
She believes he taught himself to read at an early age by memorizing words in the books they read to him. He looks and sounds like an extremely intelligent 6-year-old boy. That's because he is.But in certain situations, things can be quite different for Jacob. He has trouble playing with other kids. Reciprocal or interactive play with other kids is difficult for him.
"In extremely stressful situations, he'll have a meltdown," said Brian Gleize, Jacob's dad. "He'll spin and spin around and won't stop. You have to wrap him up, hold him and tell him it's all good."
He didn't fit in. He had problems at school.
"School buses were horrible for him," Brian said. "School assemblies were very difficult."
