The parents of an eight-year-old girl whose intelligent quote (IQ) means she has superior intelligence, have spoken of their despair after their daughter was expelled from three schools because of her violent behaviour.

Charlotte Tait has an IQ of 130 but she has been known to slap, bite and pull the hair of her teachers after quickly losing her temper when she feels she is not being listened to.

Her parents Arthur and Maxine Tait believe that their daughter is a sufferer of Asperger syndrome - a type of autism that means sufferers have difficulty communicating.

Mr Tait, 53, said: 'Our lives have become absolute hell. We have fallen apart as a family.

'I am 100 per cent sure that Charlotte has Asperger syndrome and is simply not being listened to.

But Charlotte, who has two brothers, Cory, 7, and Ceri, 6, does not behave in entirely the same way at home.

'She's not as aggressive at home,' said Mr Tait. 'It's because she's listened to and understood.

'But it's making our whole family prisoners in our own homes. It's very difficult for Cory and Ceri.

'They can't have friends round because we can't trust that Charlotte won't get angry.'

Mr and Mrs Tait are now unable to secure Charlotte in a school near to their home in Malton, North Yorkshire, and are home-educating her through an online educational programme.
