4) He could see the way her arm moved when she wrote the last line
Mmhmm. I thought about this too. The kid could of watched her arm/hand movements as she wrote the numbers on the paper. If he is that precisionally inclined toward mathematics on a savant level and having learned several languages then he indeed could of mastered the art of visuallizing what is being written as the hand and arm and writing tool curved around the page while writing numbers and created patterns he had become familiar with and already cataloged into this brain. & if he were capable of doing this being that savant that he is, it would indeed come across as "magical" to the average human mind who does not have this type of capability.
Let's take a look at the wiki definition of telepathy
Telepathy (from the Ancient Greek τῆλε, tele meaning "distant" and πάθος, pathos or -patheia meaning "feeling, perception, passion, affliction, experience") is the purported transmission of information from one person to another without using any of our known sensory channels or physical interaction
So in the case of this autistic boy, we can see that according to the definition above, the boy could of used an un-known sensory channel to become telepathic. If he watched her body movements because he had memorized the curves of numbers then we would easily be able to recite those numbers back to his mother. He senses/ and sees what the average person would never waste their time paying attention to and then catalogs it into his extremely smart mind.
and on the other side of this idea of telepathy...

You 'may' find interest in Edgar Cayce who cured 1,000s after getting into a meditative state working through the 'akasha'.

Yes Cayce certainly did a lot of good for many people and have also read many of his accounts. I particularily like that he mentioned 'Russia' being the hope of the world in his future.
It is interesting you both bring up Edgar Cayce, aka The Sleeping Prophet. Who appeared to be extremely telepathic.
I believe everyone can be telepathic to a certain extent. I've been to the Edgar Cayce research center, A.R.E Center - Association for Research and Enlightenment Center where they offer a free class (Extra-Sensory Perception ESP Demonstration Class) where they demonstrate and allow each person in the class to test their own abilities. If I remember correctly, the test had three to four categories and afterward, you find out which category you respond to with the most strength. We learned the different types of mind reading and knowing the future types of telepathy that exist. People can be strong in one area but completely weak in another. I think I tested well in the precognition category.
Clairvoyance: Paranormal acquisition of information concerning an object or contemporary physical event; in contrast to telepathy, the information is assumed to derive directly from an external physical source (such as a concealed photograph), and not from the mind of another person.
Telepathy: paranormal acquisition of information concerning the thoughts, feelings or activity of another conscious being; the word has superseded earlier expressions such as “thought-transference.”
Precognition: A form of extrasensory perception in which the target is some future event that cannot be deduced from normally known data in the present.

I would point out that even the kitchen sponge only holds so much water... the brain too can get completely saturated....as I am prone to think that this 'wonder-kid' will someday achieve,,,
