Speach and Language Therapist's impression

I got a call from the Speech and Language Therapist about Finn. He's seen her a couple of times, and has been subjected to a barrage of tests.

She said she has finished her first assessment, and as had been suspected, Finn is not normal. The word she used was 'exceptional'. By that she doesn't mean exceptional for a 6 year old, but on the adult scale, his language ability is still exceptional. He is very gifted.

So given his great natural ability, school should be a cynch, no? Well, no, he still seems to have issues following instructions. The issue seems to be that the teacher doesn't say anything that interests him.
