2.5-year-old’s IQ ranks in the top percentile and she becomes one of the youngest members of Mensa.

Every generation has its own prodigy. Children who display extraordinary skills make you believe in miracles because of their phenomenal abilities. Similarly, Isla McNabb did certain things that made the hairs on her parents’ necks stand…

Much like any other 2.5-year-old toddler, Ilsa McNabb likes watching “Blippi” on YouTube. But unlike any other toddler, she also has some extraordinary skills which confounded her parents.  Her mother Amanda who is an auditor and her father Jason who is a dentist both noticed Isla’s toy alphabet letters in configurations spread across their home. Their pet cat had the letters C-A-T next to it. While next to the couch, they saw S-O-F-A.

They figured out that it was their toddler putting those letters together. Impressed at her ability to not only recognize words but spelling them, they decided to have her IQ tested. She scored in the top percentile, in the top 1%. Because of her results, she was invited to be a member of Mensa, which only offers membership to people who score in the top 2%.
