WHAT day was my birthday, May 21? Without blinking, Dante replies: ‘‘Saturday.’’
What day was November 28, I ask, picking a date at random.
‘‘Monday! That’s the day I went to Woodsy. I always get upset. I wanted to go to Werribee Primary. It’s too busy!’’
Dante was diagnosed with autism in kinder. Last year, he revealed a savant’s ability of knowing which day every date falls on.
Also last year, he was forced to leave school aged just eight.
