Callum, who was recently diagnosed with Autism, loves grappling with new facts and figures.

Mum Sarah said: “Callum attends Ballykeel Primary School and is just doing so so well – he is in a really high reading group and seems to be flying, but still gets his one-to-one time.

“He loves to watch YouTube, but uses this to teach himself new things. So far, for a 5-year-old he’s picked up some amazing things. He can count and do his times tables, he knows the alphabet in Spanish and can say it backwards too.

“But recently, he has taken a huge interest in flags of the countries across the world and picked these up so quickly through watching YouTube videos.

“I do help him along the way, but it’s funny, if I get anything wrong, he doesn’t be best pleased with me. He’s such a character and I am just so, so proud of him,” Sara told ‘Belfast Live’.
