At the age of four, he's already been made a member of Mensa and achieved fame for his intellect.
But that wasn't enough for Sherwyn Sarabi, who is now being compared to Albert Einstein, Bill Gates and Stephen Hawking after recording an IQ score of
The psychologist who tested Sherwyn, from Barnsley, South Yorkshire, said his score - the highest possible on the Wechsler Scale - showed he has a
'very superior level of intelligence'.

Not much to say but we need the kids out their with high IQ they could help our planet and imagine if they ran for president!
A child with 160 IQ can, and often does, come with some "special needs." I hope the parents are equipped with some good resources to guide him.
MENSA isn't the best in this regard. It's really more of a vanity/social club. I hope they look into an organization like the Davidson's Institute
which offers resources to parents of profoundly gifted children. These children are such a small subset of the population, and in same cases their
needs are so unique, that many of of the normal rules of education (and even parenting) just don't apply.
Ideally, you'd want him to have a normal childhood (and not be exploited, obviously...) but also not deny that what makes him special and unique.
It's a tough balance. If he becomes a rather public figure at a young age due to his high IQ, it can put terribly high expectations on him and that
can lead to a host of problems.
Unfortunately, children on the very high end of the spectrum (IQ-wise) don't get the same support and government resources as children at the other
end of the spectrum (that is children that require special education services due to mental retardation or developmental delays). Hopefully this
family can find a good and supportive community to plug into and lean on - like Davidsons.
