Cerebral palsy (CP) affects a person’s mobility, coordination, agility, balance and posture. Regarding intelligence (IQ), however, people with CP fall within the normal distribution on a bell-shaped curve with approximately 2.5% falling in the superior/genius range.
One day when walking, Ferdinand looked into a chess club in the slums of Makoko. He walked inside and his peers started making fun of him because of his awkward CP conditions.
Ferdinand did turn out to be a chess savant. Less than one month after learning the game, Ferdinand won the junior section of a local tournament.
