Did You Know - Einstein Wasn't always a Genius?

by Sneha Desai

Image of Sneha DesaiYou might think that Einstein is a genius, but he wasn't born that way. Nope, he actually had a lot of troubles and difficulties in his past. When Einstein was born, he had a large head and his mother thought that he was deformed. He had speech difficulty as a child and spoke very slowly. According to the latest research, Einstein showed signs of Asperger's from a young age. As a child, he often repeated sentences obsessively until he was seven years old.

According to the BBC [1] - "Albert Einstein (March 1879 - 18 April 1955) was a German-born theoretical physicist who discovered the theory of general relativity, effecting Image of Albert Einsteina revolution in physics. For this achievement, Einstein is often regarded as the father of modern physics. He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect"."
