What the Expert Says:

Hello and thank you for writing to JustAsk!

The term "exceptional child (children)" has been commonly used to describe children who have abilities outside of what is considered "norm" for their age group.  This would include children with mental challenges, physical challenges and perhaps even autism.

Here is a website that may be of use for you- http://www.eparent.com/

I hope this answers your question.
